  • U-Prep Announces New Superintendent/Principal for 2015-16

    Shelle Peterson

    On Wednesday, March 25, 2015, the Board of Trustees voted unanimously to appoint Shelle Peterson Superintendent/Principal of University Preparatory School effective July 1, 2015. Following a nationwide search, Mrs. Peterson was chosen by the Board and Staff Interview Committee because of her record of educational leadership, her commitment to students, and her demonstrated skills in student success. “We are confident that we’ve found the best person for U-Prep,” Board President Karen Hatter said. “Mrs. Peterson will be a very visible superintendent, one who builds strong ties with students, teachers, parents and the community.”

    Mrs. Peterson holds a bachelor's degree in Secondary Education - Science and a master's degree in Education Administration. She brings a wealth of educational and leadership experience to the position. Having worked in five school districts, most recently the Enterprise Elementary School District, she earned a reputation as a visionary leader who rolls up her sleeves to engage with students and staff. Over her twenty plus years in education, she has served as site principal at the elementary, middle school, and high school levels in addition to science teacher, assistant principal, and district office administrator. Mrs. Peterson joins an outstanding team of teachers and administrators poised to take U-Prep to even higher levels of student achievement and supportive culture.
