While Wayne McKelvey was a grad student, he worked with young people from broken families who were missing classes. As he noticed the positive impact he had on these students, he became inspired to teach.
McKelvey has been in education for 49 years. He values being available to his students and their parents. His office opens every day at 7am and he works with students until 4pm which is when parent hours start until 8pm. As Principal, McKelvey, takes great pride in the success rate of Metro Prep’s students and the amount of academic and athletic recognition they have received throughout the world.
McKelvey continues to support each student until they become successful graduates, with this belief in mind, “I am a strong individualist and try to get all students to focus on their own strengths and make them realize they all have special talents. If they are happy with their lives and realize their talents, they will be extremely positive and productive throughout their lives.”
