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.
