Mr. Jacob Lail

I am beyond excited to begin this school year!  It is truly an honor to lead Alexander Central High School.  This school has a tradition of excellence and I look forward to continuing that tradition.  I also look forward to building relationships with students, parents, teachers, and community partners.  Together we will challenge all students to achieve high levels of success. Go Cougars!

I most recently served as the principal of West Alexander Middle School. Prior to my time at West, I served as an assistant principal at Alexander Central High School and East Alexander Middle School. I have a master's degree in Educational Leadership from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington.  My bachelor's degree is in History, Secondary Education from Appalachian State University.  Before school administration, I taught Advanced Placement (AP) United States History at Alexander Central and social studies at the middle and high school levels.  I enjoy being outdoors and traveling with my wife.  My wife and I currently live in the Town of Taylorsville.
