Principal's Corner


Image for 2016-17

Dear White Oak Students and Families:

Welcome to the “Principal’s Corner” portion of our school’s website.  As an educator in Onslow County for the past 20 years, I have had the privilege to know the last four principals of this great school.  Mr. Wiggins, Dr. Doyle, Mrs. Bryan and Mrs. Dennis all worked in different ways to build upon the foundation and tradition of excellence in academics, the arts and athletics.  Their success is due to instructional leadership and a combination of dedicated teachers, talented students and supportive parents.  My effort is to continue to lead our school in a direction that allows our kids to learn and achieve. 

One of the most important things we can do as a faculty and leadership team is to communicate key information.  If you have difficulty finding what you need, please contact us directly.  There are a variety of ways to communicate with us and find out what is happening at your school.  Please check these digital and social resources:

President Franklin Roosevelt said, “We may not be able to prepare the future for our children, but we can at least prepare our children for the future.”   As an educator, I will work to facilitate the opportunities needed for that preparation.  I want all White Oak students to graduate with what they individually need to be successful in the workforce, college and beyond.  Go Vikes!



Dr. Christopher Barnes, Principal
