Mr. Anthony Whitaker

Hello Four Oaks Middle Students, Parents, and stakeholders!

My name is Anthony Whitaker and I am excited for the opportunity to be the new Principal at Four Oaks Middle. Let me share some of my background you might like to know! 


  • BS in Elementary Education from North Carolina Central University
  • Masters of Arts in Education/Administration and Supervision from University of Phoenix 
  • Currently working on my Doctorate of Education in Education Leadership


I have been an Assistant Band Director for Southeast Raleigh High School for 15 years and Assistant Basketball coach for 6 years. I taught all 5th grade subjects at Cooper Elementary for 6 years before moving into the Assistant Principal role at Cleveland High School. I have served as Assistant Principal for 7 years in Johnston County Public schools (Cleveland High School, Selma Elementary, & West Clayton Elementary). 

I am thrilled to continue to make a positive impact in education by building relationships with students, parents, and the community.  I work to create learning opportunities within the school and creating a safe environment to learn. I will continue to strengthen the Social/ Emotional skills of students with the collaboration of the Four Oaks Middle school staff. I truly believe that “it takes a village to raise a child”

I am looking forward to meeting each student and becoming a part of the Four Oaks community.
