NEWS AND EVENTS
• Meet WES's new Head of School:
West End School is pleased to announce Kelly Wright Henrion, a Louisville native with almost two decades of experience at the highest levels of education, will become head of school on July 1, 2017. Mrs. Henrion was chosen for her extensive experience founding and leading college preparatory charter schools very similar to West End School. Her experience positions her to help guide the direction of our school for years to come.
Robert Blair has served as head of school since 2005 when he and his wife, Deborah,
co-founded West End School. The Blairs plan to retire in June. In the coming months, Mrs. Henrion will work closely with the Blairs, faculty, staff and other stakeholders in the WES family and community to ensure a smooth transition. Her tenure with West End School will be focused on providing the best possible educational programs for our students.
