New principal sees ‘fertile ground’ at Crosswinds


School has only been in session for a couple months, but Carlondrea Hines, principal at Crosswinds East Metro Arts and Science School, is already juggling her time.

Hines has been doing double duty at both Crosswinds and Perpich Center for Arts Education, where she is also the principal.

Hines came to Crosswinds after Perpich, a state arts high school, took over control at Crosswinds when the East Metro Integration District decided to cut ties with the school.
