Principal's Message

June 3, 2020

"Education is not cookie cutter, it's couture." There is no one size fits all; no small, medium, large and extra-large. This will forever be the defining attribute of public education. And only the schools that can balance quality control with individual pathways will truly succeed. A high school's true success is actually never quantifiable. Because the success is deferred for a period of time due to other events - further study, formal training, changes in life circumstances, changing economic demands.

Even if it happens just once a year at graduation, I see what a school means to kids - how their connection to their school matters. How much pride they feel wearing the cap and gown. Our interactions with kids either strengthen their connection to their school or weaken it. There has to be a certain level of consciousness.

My adrenaline during our Class of 2020 drive out didn't come from the accomplishments of kids passing in cars, taking pictures, posting them on social media. It came from the excitement of what they will become. And selfishly, just maybe, a future high school principal, hands raised triumphantly, drove by that night in cap and gown.

Have a wonderful summer. I look forward to the beginning of a new school year in the fall!

Mr. Douglas Loftus
