Greetings Stout Stinger Families and Friends,
I am Jennifer Short your new Stout Principal.  It is a pleasure and a privilege to serve the Stout family and be a part of the 501 School District.

My educational career spans over 19 years with teaching and administration and I am a life-long learner. 

At Stout, we believe in educating all students to be successful in school and in life through the combined team effort of parents, students, teachers, and community. As we work together to ensure your child is successful, we will celebrate their progress, support their efforts, and ensure they know how special they are to this community!

With Stinger Pride,

Jennifer Short, Ed. S.

Did you know...

Our school was named for Mr. A.J. Stout who began teaching in the Topeka Public Schools at Topeka High School in 1899, after teaching at THS for 5 years he was made vice-principal and in 1999 was promoted to principal. In 1918, after gaining a reputation as being an educator with a vision, he was promoted again and became the Superintendent of the Topeka Public Schools.

Mr. Stout served as the superintendent for 24 years. When Mr. Stout retired in 1942 he said, “We have gradually liberalized the schools so that there is not just one way to do a thing. We have tried to give the child who can use his hands better than his voice or something else a chance to develop that native talent. I am proud of the fact that every youngster has had a chance as nearly as we could give it and that we’ve tried to give everybody a square deal.”
