The adults at Encina Preparatory 6-12 wear many hats. At a school with sixth- through 12th-grade students from diverse backgrounds, the staff needs to be adaptable, sensitive and focused. Heidi Garner is a vice principal, handling last names A through G in a school that will see an estimated 1,200 students pass through its doors this school year. She is not just in charge of disciplining students, but she plays the role of advocate, cheerleader and sounding board.
