About Gallup Central High School


Central High School students and families,


My name is Jake Stokes and I am your new principal. I have a background in secondary teaching, but most recently have been the principal at Chee Dodge Elementary School. I am excited to be back in secondary and at Central High School. My focus will be to get students graduated. My plan is to know every student that comes through here and help them develop a plan to get them graduated.


I will be stressing academic rigor and excellence in education from both students and staff. This school year will be filled with unknown variables but we will get through it together. I want to put emphasis on attendance. It is very important for students to attend all classes every day regardless if it’s online or in person.


If you have any questions please stop by the school or give me a call.


Thank you,


Jake Stokes - Principal
