Arrowhead’s New Principal Joins The ONE TEAM


Lisa Jorgensen, Reporter

Arrowhead staff and students have a new principal, Adam Kurth, this school year. Kurth is starting out in his new position along with the Class of 2025. 


Kurth has been at six different schools and has over 20 years of experience in education. 


Kurth introduced himself to the Class of 2025 at WINGS, Arrowhead’s freshman orientation, over the summer, along with welcoming students back to school at registration. 


The Arrowhead Advisor is Kurth’s way of communicating to families. It can be found here. 


Kurth sent out the first edition of the Arrowhead Advisor to all families at the beginning of the school year. Kurth said in the first edition “Arrowhead is a very special school with a culture of tradition of success like no other. All that occurs is a direct result of great kids, an outstanding staff, and a school community that has put their trust in our school.” 


Kurth believes the community Arrowhead has built is special and helps make AHS one of the top schools.


When asked about what really stands out about Kurth, Jacque Jurewicz, a biology and STS teacher, said, “The fact that he is so approachable. He wants to meet with everyone so we have the option of setting up an appointment to chat.” 


Emmerson Berger, a freshman at Arrowhead, said, “He seems like a good guy.” Berger said she doesn’t really know Kurth, besides the video that was sent out at the beginning of the year welcoming everyone back. 


In an The Arrowhead article, titled “Q&A With Arrowhead’s Future Principal Adam Kurth”, Lexi Morgan emailed Kurth questions and got back answers. 


Morgan said, “I expected responses just a few sentences long; however, what I got back was an in-depth discussion with the questions I provided.” 


Morgan asked questions to Kurth such as what he wanted students and staff to know about him and what he was looking forward to coming to Arrowhead. In some of Kurth’s answers, he mentioned how he would remember the people and opportunities he was given at Cedarburg High School as their principal along with  jokingly mentioning the change of school colors. 


In a video shared with the students on the first day of school, Kurth said, “It’s great to be here. It’s truly an honor to work with you all. I look forward to all the great things we accomplish here.” Kurth also shared in the video of how we all have to respect each other’s choices with masks being optional this year.
