It is with great pleasure and a deep sense of pride in our school that I welcome you to the Henry M. Jackson High School website.

    As principal, I am honored to be a part of a school community that works together to provide an inspiring educational experience that supports students as they find the greatness that resides inside each and every young person we have the privilege to serve.

    I believe that now more than ever that building a culture of belonging and safety for all students will allow them to learn and grow to their greatest potential.  As a leader I will work to facilitate positive growth with teachers as everyone embraces the goal of preparing each and every student for success in college, career, and life while strengthening student wellness, engagement, and safety. I am excited about what we can do for our students as every staff member strives to facilitate a systems approach that creates a truly equitable experience for all students. This will begin with a focus on building positive relationships with students and staff, as people learn best when they feel valued and heard.

    With a long and rewarding history of achievement in education, our school community continues to move forward together with Pride, Excellence, and Character as we inspire the next generation of Timberwolves to go out and change the world.

    As we say at Jackson, T-Wolves for Life!

    Lance Balla, Principal
