Our Story

On February 26, 1917, during the first session of the first annual meeting of the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), President B. Frank Brown, principal of Chicago’s Lake View High School, gave the first annual address.

His opening remarks stated, “It is certainly most gratifying to find so many principals of secondary schools present, at this, the initial meeting of our new organization ... We have long had organizationsin which we have had the privilege of membership, but this is the beginning of one which is to be devoted primarily and exclusively to our own interests and needs.” In NASSP, “we shall find an organization devoted entirely to our interests and wholly within our direction and control. I cannot understand why we have been the last in the great profession of teaching to come to our own.”

As NASSP enters into its second century of school leadership, the association continues its strong tradition of providing a national voice for all school leaders, support for student leaders and activities advisers nationwide, and outstanding products and services to serve the education profession and support the association’s vision to develop great leaders in every school committed to the success of each student.

Thank you!
