Jennifer West, Principal


This community is like home to me, since I have worked at Buckhorn High School for 13 years.  I started at BHS in 2007 as a Special Education Teacher and transitioned into my role as Assistant Principal in 2016.  In my time at Buckhorn, I was given the opportunity to work with all levels of students and tailor their learning to meet their individual needs.  As an educator, I believe in meeting the needs of the whole child. Each student must be healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged. As your new principal, it is my goal to ensure that your student gets that daily.

On a personal level, I am a Huntsville native.  I come from a large, blended family where I am the middle of six other siblings.  I am recently engaged to my best friend, Tyler, and we have a dog and two cats. I love Mexican food and trying new herbal teas.  If you ask me what my ‘paradise’ looks like, it would be at the beach, my feet in the sand, and a good book in my hands.

Previous Experience:
Assistant Principal: Buckhorn High School (2016-2020)
