Pope John Paul II High School Hendersonville(韓德森維爾教宗若望保祿二世高中)
Pope John Paul II High School Hendersonville
Pope John Paul II High School was founded in 2002 by Bishop Edward U. Kmiec, now the retired bishop of the Diocese of Buffalo. The majority of the school's population resides in the Sumner County area, but there is a strong regional draw, with the current student body coming from ten separate counties and forty-five zip codes, some from as far away as Clarksville and Bowling Green.
Hans Broekman was hired as the school's founding headmaster; Faustin Weber followed him from 2008-2015, and Mike Deely is now the third headmaster, beginning the 2015-2016 school year. The school is led by a Board of Trustees that governs school policy, sets annual budgets and establishes a long term vision. The Headmaster is supported by six "cabinet-level" leaders—an Assistant Head/Dean of Studies, Dean of Students, Director of Finance and Operations, Athletic Director, Dean of Advancement and Admissions and Director of Campus Ministry—who together run the school's day-to-day operations.
There are just over 570 students in grades 9-12. The school employs 75 faculty and staff, with a full-time school nurse and three full-time school counselors. The facility sits atop a 66-acre plot of land in the north Nashville area, surrounded by trees, athletic fields and parking. Inside there are thirty-five classrooms, an auditorium, chapel, cafeteria, band room, art rooms, library, offices, and athletic facilities. More on the school, in video form, can be seen here.
