Donell McNeal

This is my 8th year as an administrator in West Ada School District (4 years as an Assistant Principal-Eagle HS, 4th year as Principal at Central Academy). I began my educational career as a school counselor and served schools in Colorado, Southern California, and Idaho. What I love most about education is the opportunity to inspire, motivate and see young men and women become the best versions of themselves.

I am married (my beautiful wife is a teacher in Kuna School District) with 3 beautiful kids. Jayden-13, Tytan-8, and Taytem-4. They keep me busy outside of school running them around to sleepovers, birthday parties, practices, games, and coaching their teams. Life gets pretty hectic for us. Our motto is "family first" and we wouldn't change our crazy life for the world!
