Jordan HS Hair Battle Royale


Ross McAlpine

As the principal of Barbara Jordan High School, I am excited to begin the new school year.  Team Jordan is empowering students with the knowledge and skills needed to bridge the workforce of yesterday to the careers of tomorrow.  We will be the problem solvers for current professions and leaders of future professions.
As HISD’s only Career Magnet school, our goal is to ensure all students build on the traditional high school requirements with real world applications in their chosen career strand.  Our students can begin their post secondary education and/or career fields with rigorous core content, college credits, and career certifications. 
Our pioneer, Ms. Barbara Jordan, raised the bar for all that follow to define their destiny.  It is her founded passion for knowledge, strength to challenge self, and integrity to stand for justice that characterizes the culture of Barbara Jordan High School.  
We strive for Excellence, as it is an Honor to be Team Jordan.
