Experience the power of public education.
I am truly humbled and excited about the opportunity to serve this community as the principal of the inaugural Sylvan Hills High School Freshman Campus (SHFC). I have served as assistant principal on the main campus for the past four years and I am committed to leading and carrying out the “Sylvan Hills” way.
The SHFC is an extension of Sylvan Hills High School and was established to create a successful transition for ninth grade students. Research indicates that the freshman year of high school is the most challenging for students and our goal is to ensure that all students have a connection to school, are supported academically and socially, and are prepared to have a successful high school experience. In just four short years, students will be graduating from high school. Additionally, this transitional year will help students adjust to high school and learn the importance of obtaining credits that will apply toward graduation requirements.
As principal, I understand the importance of creating an environment where students can succeed. The faculty and staff of the SHFC are committed to providing quality instruction in a nurturing environment that empowers students to achieve their maximum potential by creating a bridge from middle school to high school.
During the course of the year, it is my hope that we will work together to provide the students of the SHFC the BEST possible opportunities in preparing them to master the challenges of the 21st Century with a solid foundation created here at our school. Academic achievement is our highest priority.
