Mr. Keith Richardson

Greetings,

My name is Keith Richardson and it gives me great joy to be selected as principal of Knightdale High School of Collaborative Design. I look forward to working with you and your children on a continuous journey of learning.

I have had the honor of serving as a principal in Wake County schools since 2010. I am currently at Crossroads Flex High School and previously served York Elementary School.

As your principal, my commitment is to ensure a safe and equitable community that promotes a love for learning and high academic achievement. To reach these goals, I believe in clear expectations for teachers and students, building meaningful relationships and providing strong support for teachers so they can engage students in learning every day

It will take all of us working together to accomplish the goals and I cannot wait to get started.

I intend to meet every staff member and as many parents and community leaders as possible this summer. It is an honor and privilege for me to have this opportunity.
