Principal's Message

Ted Davis It is with great pleasure I serve as principal for the Herbert Henry Dow faculty, students and community. H. H. Dow High School has a strong tradition of academic success. We were recognized as a National Exemplary School in 2002 and consistently rank as one of the top high schools in Michigan by U.S. News magazine.

At Dow High, our staff and students take our SPIRIT seriously. SPIRIT is more than a word to us; it's an attitude that comes through in all aspects of the Dow High culture. Dow High SPIRIT is present in the classroom, on the field, in the auditorium, and in our halls. Staff and students of Dow High School defined CHARGER SPIRIT, and continue to share a legacy of commitment to these values for future generations of Chargers. The elements of SPIRIT and the legacy our staff and students strive to achieve every day at Dow High: Strength, Pride, Integrity, Respect, Intensity, Tradition.
- Principal Ted Davis
