Welcome to Keystone Heights Junior-Senior High!
I am honored to introduce myself to you as the Principal of Keystone Heights Junior-Senior High. I am very excited to be leading this tremendous school with such a dynamic staff, stellar students, and supportive parents and community members.
Prior to becoming Principal of Keystone Heights Junior-Senior High, I have been in education for 19 years - 14 of those years have been in administration. I have had the opportunity to serve at the elementary, middle, and high school levels; I also had the privilege of serving as the Dean of Academics at Central Office. I have a strong background in educational curriculum, effective instructional practices, and classroom management strategies.
Keystone Heights Junior-Senior High exists to prepare lifelong learners for success in a global and competitive workplace, and help them acquire applicable life skills. Our teaching staff truly makes a difference - our goal is to be the #1 high school in the state of Florida. We can achieve this goal if we believe we can and we work collectively.
Thanks to the amazing teachers and students, Keystone Heights Junior-Senior High has risen an entire letter grade from a “C” to a “B”. We were just a few points away from being an “A” school - and we can get there with the help from our amazing teachers and students that we have here on campus.
As we partner together for this school year, we will need your help! Our commitment to you is to keep our focus on teaching and learning. You can help us by making sure students arrive to school on time, each day. Our school day begins at 7:20am and ends at 1:40pm. Please make all efforts to schedule any student appointments before or after school hours to ensure that your child receives a full day's instruction.
As we begin the new school year, please make sure to keep the lines of communication open with your child’s teacher. She/he will always be your first contact for any questions or concerns you may have. Parents and teachers working together will increase your child’s success, while also serving as a great model for students as to how to work effectively as a team.
Please know that the Keystone Heights Junior-Senior High staff is dedicated to ensuring that every student receives instruction that meets their individual academic needs in a safe and supportive school environment. Our staff takes great pride in interactions with students and families. Building positive relationships with all students, families and staff is of great importance to me as well. Please feel free to email or call me; I will always be available to you during the school year. It is an honor!
Sincerely and Respectfully,
