I am Kirk Thomas and I am the proud Principal of Mesa High School!

I earned my bachelor's degree in mathematics at The University of Montana and my masters in Educational Administration and Leadership at Arizona State University.  I am beginning my 27th year in education, all of which have been in the Mesa Public Schools district. 

I began my career at Brimhall Junior High where I taught math and coached girls basketball and softball.  From there I moved to Skyline High School and was a member of the founding staff during the 1999-2000 school year.  After 9 years at Skyline, I moved into administration as the Team Leader at Kino Junior High School where I spent 3 years.

After Kino I worked at Mesa High School as an assistant principal.  During my first tenure, I worked in the activities department as well as in educational services.


I was also the Principal at Rhodes Junior High School.  I served 2 years at Rhodes before returning to Mesa High School.

Let's make 2020-2021 a great school year!!


Carry On!
