As Crown Point High School continues to invite new teachers, we also welcome a new administrator. Assistant Principal Justin Fronek begins his first year at CPHS, the same school he graduated from in 1994. After college, he began working at different schools around the Crown Point area, including Griffith High School and Middle School.

“I went through all Crown Point schools growing up. Crown Point is a great place to live and work. CPHS is a great school, with awesome kids and a great staff,” Fronek said. Fronek knew early on what he wanted to do with his life, which helped tremendously with his career choice. While he was finishing college, he started to coach basketball and it really seemed to click.

“It was doing this that made me realize I wanted to get into education as a career and continue to work with kids,” Fronek said.

When he graduated from Wabash College in Crawfordsville, Indiana, with a degree in history and Political science, he went on to later attend Purdue Northwest to receive his master’s in educational administration.

He eventually started coaching the Griffith Basketball team as a Varsity Basketball coach. He also worked as a social studies teacher at Griffith High school for five years. Fronek’s most recent job during his career, excluding his current job here at Crown Point, was a job at Highland High school. He was also an assistant principal at Highland Middle School for five years, and later moved up to being the principal for another five years. Throughout his life he was always dedicated to education. Knowing that he really wanted to work as either a teacher or coach, he took his knowledge over to Crown Point, starting his career back up as another assistant principal.

He knew he always wanted to come back and work for the Crown Point School System. Luckily a position opened up for him to fulfill this dream.

“Growing up and living in Crown Point, I always wanted to come back and work in the school system. This current time and situation ended up being the right time to do so.

— Assistant Principal Justin Fronek

Fronek started working various jobs at different schools and kept going up in his career, but still ended up in his hometown. As the assistant principal of our school, his biggest concern is the safety of the students and staff, as well as the education that we are receiving.

“My time here so far has been fantastic. The people I work with have been welcoming and enjoyable, and the students have been great and fun to be around,” Fronek said.

Fronek may have just joined the CP school system as an administrator, but he has been with us since he was a little boy. So, a special “Welcome back” is sent to you, Mr. Fronek, from your Crown Point newspaper staff. We hope you enjoy your first year.
