Principal Mark McKinney

Dear Bannerman Learning Center Parents and Community Members,

I want to personally extend to you a very warm welcome to Bannerman Learning Center. Bannerman is a unique school nestled in the middle of Green Cove Springs that encompasses four distinct programs to fulfill the needs of our students. Success (serving students with special needs in a self-contained setting), Champions (serving students who are placed in an alternative setting for disciplinary reasons), TAP (serving teen parents and their children), and Elevation Academy (serving students who are not on track to graduate in a lab setting).

At Bannerman, we strive to provide high-quality programs that support the academic, social and emotional growth of its students.  We believe in developing the “whole student”, Our commitment is to ensure your student receives the best education to prepare them for the rigors beyond high school while exploring the skills necessary to fulfill their future endeavors.

We have a kind, caring, highly-qualified staff who recognizes the role they play in helping your student reach his or her full potential.  We truly believe all students can be successful and this belief drives the work they do on a daily basis in the classroom.  Parent involvement is also vital to your student’s success, and we ask that you continue to play an active role in their education.

I am honored to serve as principal of Bannerman Learning Center. It is truly a privilege to be a part of this community where parents, teachers, and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth. Together we can meet each student where they are and help build them into productive citizens. Go Bison!
