Vision can be defined as a picture of the future that produces passion in the leader, and it’s the passion people want to follow. It’s time again to combine our passion for another great school year!
I hope you had a restful summer and have spent quality time with family and friends. I am excited to get started as we carry on the task of transforming the way we ensure our students learn. We will continue being the CHange this year and stay on course to becoming the absolute best high school for our community.
