About Stilwell Junior High
A Message from Principal Kuhnert and Assistant Principal Perrigo
Hello, Stilwell community,
I am honored to serve our students, families, staff and community as the principal of Stilwell Junior High School. I will be dedicated to building strong relationships with our students, families, and the surrounding community. Community is an important word for me in our work. We want all of our students to feel that they are a part of something bigger than themselves and to proudly represent the Tiger tradition in their own unique individual way.
As we start the 2023-24 school year, these two classes will get to open our new auditorium which started construction in 2022. Our families will experience our new drop off and pick up lane and more importantly the education from our amazing staff. I always tell families that these years are the most important years to lean into your students. They are growing up and are becoming independent but they need adults to help problem solve and navigate their teenage years. Stilwell is committed to walk with our families to develop all of our students so they are ready for high school and beyond.
This document is just an overview of some of the items you as guardians may want to know. If, however, you find yourself questioning or wondering about something about Stilwell, please feel free to call us directly. We know you have a choice in schools and am thankful for each of our families that selected Stilwell and the West Des Moines Community Schools.
Thank you and welcome,
