Washington Union High School Welcomes John Sherron as Principal

Washington Union High School is proud to welcome John Sherron as its 2017-18 principal. Sherron will be taking the helm of the oldest high school in the Central Valley and is excited to carry on WUHS’s tradition of excellence.

 

Sherron brings a wealth of experience to his new role.  Prior to entering education, Sherron served in the United States Navy, earning the position of Navy Chief.  Continuing his commitment to public service, Sherron began his career in Washington Unified in 2005 as a teacher in the Social Science department.  He served as the school’s Advanced Placement Coordinator, Learning Director, and Curriculum Director before being promoted to a district office role as the Director of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment for grades 7-12.  Sherron was instrumental in helping Washington Unified’s teachers transition to the Common Core State Standards and in helping our students to make significant gains in achievement in both English and Math over the last two years.

 

Sherron is excited to step into the role as Principal and has already made exciting changes that will benefit students and families.  In an effort to better serve all students, Sherron redesigned the existing Panther Academy to form the College and Career Academy which merges the school’s administrative support efforts for both academics and career prep.  Sherron also plans to continue the school’s focus on academic achievement which has led to one of the highest graduation rates in the Central Valley of 94%.
