Is it the school name then principal?

ABC Elementary School
Mrs. Jane Doe
1234 Main Ave.
Xyz, LA 12344

or should I just do the principal's name and no school name at all?

I would do one of two things:

Principal name
School name
Address

OR

School name
Address
Attn: Principal

I would do the way you have it listed. School name, then principal's name, etc. I figure that makes sure it gets to the correct building, then once inside...to the correct person.

Principal's name first. The school name and street address will ensure it gets to the right place.

Always work backwards, start big and get small (state, city, street, building, person) is what I was taught. I'm sure it will get there however you do it
Mr. Principal
ABC School
1234 Student Dr.
City, ST 112233

In looking at several school websites, the expectation seems to be:

Name of Principal
School
Street Address
City, etc.
