On June 22, the Beverly Hills Unified School District (BHUSD) Board of Education approved the appointment of Torray Johnson as the new Beverly Hills High School (BHHS) Assistant Principal. Johnson will assume the position in July.
With almost 20 years of experience, Johnson started his career as a high school English teacher with the New Orleans Parish School Board, and then later with the Chaffey Joint Union High School District. Most recently, he served as the Vice Principal at Antelope Valley High School, overseeing Special Education.
“Mr. Johnson’s extensive time in the high school arena leaves him well poised to further the exemplary work of our BHHS staff, students, and community,” BHUSD Superintendent, Dr. Michael Bregy, said. “With substantial experience in PBIS, Special Education, and beyond, Mr. Johnson will bring an innovative perspective to our Norman family.”
Johnson holds a Master of Education Degree in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies from the UCLA Principal Leadership Institute (PLI), a Master of Arts Degree in Secondary Teacher Education from the University of Phoenix, and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Literature from Dillard University.
“In looking at the accomplishments of the current team, I feel fortunate to work with individuals who not only value education but place student outcomes at the center of their decisions,” Johnson said in a statement released by the District. “As the district continues to grow and meet its goals, I look forward to offering my skill set to the students, families, and staff of BHHS and the Beverly Hills Unified School District.”
