Principal Transition - Welcome Mike Davis!

We are excited to share that the Board of Directors of Odyssey Schools has named Mr. Mike Davis as our new Associate Principal for Odyssey Charter Jr/Sr High School for the remainder of the school year under the guidance and direction of Dr. Ed Jackson, Principal, and Ms. Constance Ortiz, Founder and CEO of Green Apple School Management.

Mr. Davis has been an educator for over twenty years and has served on all three Odyssey campuses for over ten years in many different capacities. With his experience and growing knowledge of Odyssey, as well as his long-term  commitment to our schools and their unique mission, the Board of Directors also agreed that, at the close of this transitional period, Mr. Mike Davis will become the Site Administrator/Principal for Odyssey Charter Jr/Sr High School for the 2023-2024 school year. Mr. Davis is presently working very closely with Ms. Constance and Dr. Jackson to ensure a smooth transition. Please welcome Mr. Davis as he re-joins the Odyssey Jr/Sr High family.

Dr. Jackson made a nice impact on Odyssey Charter Jr/Sr in his short time as Principal.  His meaning-centered leadership style was appreciated by our students, faculty and community. We wish him well as he moves out of the area and embraces new adventures with his family.
