Welcome to Gordon Parks High School

On behalf of the staff and students of Gordon Parks High School, we want to thank Kofi Bobby Hickman for the gifts he shared with us during the first six years of our school.  Words cannot express the level of gratitude we feel toward Kofi, our sadness at his passing, and the conviction we feel toward continuing his work.  Our goal is to honor his life by continuing and strengthening the Gordon Parks-infused curriculum that Kofi so passionately supported. As Bobby always said: "Hotep."

School Profile

Our Principal

I am Traci Gauer, the proud principal of Gordon Parks High School since 2013-14 school year. I have worked in SPPS since 1996. Prior to becoming a principal I worked as a Business and Marketing Education teacher and an administrator for Career and Technical Education and Alternative Education. I also worked in business in the IT and finance fields before becoming an educator.  I believe my experiences in business and education complement each other so I can lead a learning environment focused on college and careers.
