Get to know Principal Jones

My name is Graham Jones, and I have the honor of serving as building principal at Maple Grove Elementary.

We encourage our students and staff to be lifelong learners, and I have been fortunate to have many opportunities to pursue many educational opportunities. I earned my teaching degree at the University of Northern Iowa with a BA in Elementary Education. I began my teaching career in West Des Moines prior to earning my Master’s Degree at Iowa State University with an emphasis in Educational Leadership in 2009. I then served as an assistant principal and building principal for fourteen years in the West Des Moines Community School District. In 2017, I completed my studies with a doctorate degree at Drake University. In 2022, I joined the Maple Grove team and have enjoyed collaborating with an amazing group of staff, students, and families!

When I’m not spending time with my Maple Grove family, I am busy being a husband and father. My wife, Jenni, and I have four children who keep us busy with activities and life!

Thank you for being part of our Maple Grove community and we look forward to partnering with you this year!
