Administration

Positive Impact

“We’ve had five children attend White Pine. This is our seventh year being there. We have been very impressed with the dedicated teachers and administration.  We have liked how the school adjusts according to the student level. They are there to give extra help or challenge academically, according to the need of the student. We also appreciate the communication between the parents and teachers. Emails or newsletters are set home regularly. White Pine has been a good school for my family.”

Answer to Our Questions

White Pine Charter School was the answer to our question… how do we find an excellent classroom setting, high academic standards, with a culture and learning environment that gave our kids the best opportunity for success?  We had tried private school, home schooling, and WPCS was the answer for both of our children.  They continued on through middle school at WPCS and have now successfully transitioned to public high school.

Worthwhile School

“We like that White Pine Charter School offers Spanish, music, gym, art, etc. on a weekly basis. My kids enjoy being able to meet with other classes in their grade and work with multiple people. We love that the teachers work with our kids at their level. They give them assignments catered specifically to them, whether they’re advanced or behind in a subject. There is less lecture and more hands on and imaginative work. We’re very pleased with the academics at this school.”

Joy Lea, Superintendent of White Pine Charter School

leajo@wpcscougars.org

Dr. Joy J. Lea was recently appointed to serve as Superintendent of the White Pine Charter School. Dr. Lea comes to WPCS with more than 25 years of experience in education. She retired from the Clark County School District in Las Vegas after more than two decades there as principal, assistant principal, dean, and classroom teacher in both elementary and middle schools. She earned a BS in Education (BYU), MS in Curriculum and Instruction (UNLV), and a Doctorate in Educational Leadership (NSU). Dr. Lea was instrumental in building a strong sense of community, involvement, and loyalty in her schools, which increased attendance and academic performance, and inspired an intrinsic desire in both her staff and students to do better and be better. Her interests throughout her career centered on improving student learning and teacher impact on the learning. She attributes the track record of academic improvement and success in all her schools to the quality teachers in the classroom. She looks forward to bringing the skills and experience she gained over her long career in education to her new role as WPCS Superintendent.
