Principal's Message

My name is Barry Bacom, and I am so excited to introduce myself as the new principal of Pride High School. I am honored to have been selected to join the Lockhart Independent School District, which is gaining a fantastic reputation across Central Texas for the amazing things that are happening here.  

Over the past 18 years, I have worked as a teacher and administrator, but I consider my most important job to be that of a student advocate. I will spend a lot of time with students, getting to know their personalities, learning styles, and interests. I will celebrate their successes, small and large. I will encourage them every day and let them know they are valued and have a special place in our school community.

Pride High School is LISD's Academic High School of Choice. PHS focuses on individualized learning through self-paced online curriculum blended with student-centered instruction. We exist to serve students with many different stories who, for one reason or another, may not have found success in a more traditional setting.  PHS is the ideal choice for students who wish to accelerate their learning because they are seeking to graduate early, those who are seeking to recover credits, or students who are simply seeking a smaller high school community. It is our mission to do whatever it takes to support students to meet their educational goals.

If you ever have any questions, concerns, or just want to say hello, please know that I am available and accessible. I invite you to follow us on Twitter and Facebook to see the wonderful things happening every day at PHS!
