Dear St. Philip’s ECHS Parents and Staff,

I would like to take this time to introduce myself. I am Ashlyn Barrientes, it is with great honor and enthusiasm that I greet you as the Interim Principal of St. Philip’s Early College High School. Having the opportunity to join such an awesome community and staff as the campus leader is humbling. I have served students for the past 21 years and I have loved every bit of the energy and joy students bring to my life! My experience spans from substitute teacher to district level administrator in three states and across grades 6-12. I am excited to use my experience to build upon the foundation of work taking place at St. Philip’s ECHS.

I have been blessed with a wonderful husband Joe, who is also an educator. Joe and I have recently taken on the role of “empty nesters,” now that all 6 of our children are out of the house. Although the kids are gone, we gather often for trips to the lake, traveling, and family game night. The worldwide pandemic presented many challenges, obstacles, and barriers. I would like to acknowledge the hard work and perseverance of our students, parents, and teachers over the past 18 months. Know that I am fully committed to supporting staff, and parents as we prepare students for success in high school, college, and beyond.

Our priorities are:

1. Safety

2. Building collaborative relationships

3. Practices, systems, and policies

4. Continuous improvement with high expectations

5. Academic and social-emotional student supports

I am thrilled to be serving the St. Philip’s ECHS community and staff. My door is always open, so please feel free to reach out to say hello, ask questions, or express concerns. Go Tigers!
