Principal Yancy - Meets the New Teacher

Principal Yancy is a character and antagonist in Girl Meets World. He is the Principal of John Quincy Adams Middle School. He first appeared in the season 2 episode, Girl Meets the New Teacher. He is portrayed by Stuart Pankin.


As the Principal of John Quincy Adams Middle School, Yancy is extremely strict, and set in his ways. Yet, he also seems rather jaded in his job, as he claims to play no favorites among the student body, maintaining that he holds each pupil in equal disdain.


Yancy is not afraid to use the power of his title to intimidate his subordinates, and is quick to terminate those who disregard his directives. Like most petty bullies, he is easily cowed in the presence of an individual possessing a position superior to his own.
