Will Davis

School Leader


My name is William Davis, and it is a privilege and an honor to be names the new principal of KIPP Spirit for the 21-22 school year. I been with KIPP for 11 year, the first 10 years with KIPP Polaris Academy for Boys, another year as a school leader in another school district, and the last 2 Years with KIPP Spirit College Prep. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration as well as a Master’s degree in Educational Administration.

This year marks my twentieth year in education. I have varied experience as a teacher, assistant principal and school leader. For the first six years of my career I served as middle school teacher, teaching a variety of grades and content areas. I then served for two years as an assistant principal at Milwaukee College Preparatory School, before relocating to Houston.

I love being in the education field. My passion is developing positive relationships with everyone within the community, working with students as they grow, supporting teachers and staff so that they can reach their greatest potential, strengthening a connection between school and home, and a fostering a positive school culture. At our core, we know that the school to home partnership is what allows us to provide an extraordinary school experience for all students.

I look forward to meeting each of you and learning how I can best support you throughout this year, and many more to come.
