Principal’s Corner

Doug Bird

Center Grove High School


My name is Doug Bird and I am honored to be the principal at Center Grove High School. I have spent the past ten years as a math teacher and assistant principal at rival Carmel High School. I feel confident the experiences I have gained at Carmel will serve me well as we continue the strong tradition of excellence at Center Grove. 

As principal of Center Grove High School, it is my goal that every one of the students experience a high level of success and find their high school years to be rewarding and memorable. While the definition of success differs for each student, I want you to know that the administrative team, faculty, and support staff will make every effort to ensure your student learn to the greatest extent possible and positions themselves to continue their success with whatever college or career opportunity they pursue.

As we begin another exciting school year, please feel comfortable coming up to me to introduce yourself - whether it be at Meet the Teacher Night, during a football game, or on a Saturday morning at Target. I would like to get to know as many of you as possible as we work together to ensure your students have an enjoyable and fulfilling high school career.

Go Trojans!
