Welcome to GOAL High School Thornton

Meet the assistant principal

Jennifer Bowens

My name is Jennifer Bowens and this is my ninth year with GOAL High School. I taught English initially but now I am the Assistant Principal for our Thornton site. I am so blessed to be a able to use my education and experience to help students and families find a success here at GOAL!! Besides the many children I have here at school, I have three at home (ages 11, 9, and 4). I also have a wonderful husband to help me keep those three in line. ;) We all love to go swimming, to the park, and sing obnoxiously loud to the radio! In my quieter life, I love to watch TV and try new baking recipes. Please call me, email me, catch me on Teams or even schedule a time to meet in person if you have any questions I can answer!
