A Message From New Principal, Gayle Hinrichs

Welcome to Community Prep High School, home of the Warriors!

I would like to take a moment and introduce myself.  My name is Gayle Hinrichs. I am a native of Nebraska but have been in Colorado since 1992.

I am extremely excited to work with the students of Community Prep.  While there have been some changes to the school to meet District requirements, we remain a school that understands the unique issues our students face on a daily basis.  Please visit Community Prep and work with me and my team to develop a schedule that will enable you to succeed academically while understanding your individual challenges.

I began my teaching career in 1985 teaching kindergarten children how to read. I spent seven years teaching elementary age children before moving to Colorado Springs where I spent almost 20 years working at Sierra High School as a teacher, Dean of Students and an Assistant Principal.  Most recently I worked as an Assistant Principal in Cañon City.  I was extremely excited to be offered a position at Community Prep School.  At the time I did not dream I would become the Principal of the school, but at the Board of Director’s Meeting on September 26, 2018 I was appointed Principal of this wonderful school.

Please know we welcome all students who want an education to attend Community Prep School.  Check us out and let us develop a plan to help you meet your educational goals.
