Principal's Message

Bray Shamblin

Dear Stakeholders,

As the principal at South Gallia Middle/High School, it is an honor to have the opportunity to serve such an outstanding community. It is my desire to work with you, your child, and the staff to continue to promote a strong sense of community in order to increase student achievement. Throughout my career, I have learned that the best method to increase and maintain high student achievement is to promote the development of a strong school community where the principal, staff, parents, and all stakeholders collaborate in order to best meet the needs of their students

On behalf of the South Gallia Middle/High School faculty and staff, I would like to welcome our new and returning students. South Gallia High/Middle School has earned a reputation of academic excellence through the hard work of our students, parents, teachers/staff, and our community.

South Gallia supports a wide array of exemplary academic, athletic, and social opportunities for all students. The goal of South Gallia Middle/High School is to empower every student to maximize his or her opportunities while meeting global challenges.  South Gallia offers a safe learning environment that promotes intellectual growth, health, creativity, and respect for self and others. We are proud of the accomplishments of our school and are excited to share our Rebel pride throughout the 2023-2024 school year. I truly believe strong partnerships between parents/guardians/stakeholders and staff lead to academic success for all students. Therefore, I invite you to actively participate in the education of the students at South Gallia Middle/High School. This participation may come in a variety of forms including joining the boosters for athletics or band, working as a volunteer at the school, checking your child’s homework/agenda on a daily basis, attending school-wide events, and communicating questions or concerns to the teachers and myself.

Thank you for the opportunity to work with your students. I look forward to meeting new faces and working with those established in our community.  GO REBELS!!!
