Principal's Page


Welcome to Scituate High School, 2021-2022, where we are striving to become your home away from home! Every student, staff member, and caregiver is important to the overall success that can be achieved at SHS, and every member of our community should have a seat at the table and a voice that is heard. Because every student is important, it is vital that students have a voice in their own education journey, as well as the decisions that guide Scituate High School as a whole. As the proud principal of SHS, I will bring students together to have conversations regarding academics, athletics and co-curriculars, social-emotional health and wellness, and school culture. At the heart of these conversations will be the questions, “How do we build strong relationships founded on respect in order to foster a safe, inclusive, and welcoming community of learners?” and “How do we self-assess and grow our academic and co-curricular opportunities?” in order to create the best high school in the world. 

The mission of Scituate High School is to provide an environment conducive to the fullest possible development of each student. Our programs endeavor to meet the needs of students with diverse learning styles and a wide range of abilities and goals. The ongoing renewal of these programs is sustained by the belief that enabling students in the present is helping them build lives as contributing adults. Our graduation requirements encourage students to participate in a program where they are exposed to a variety of courses, activities, and instructional approaches. To take this mission further, we all have a shared responsibility to ensure that this becomes a lived experience for every student, every day, and that students are positively challenged to grow into problem-solving, critically-thinking, and innovating contributors to a global society beyond high school, through subsequent college and career opportunities. 

As we continue to navigate schooling in the midst of the pandemic, we will continue our commitment to safety for all who learn and work at SHS.  We will also pursue our core values of SAIL: Serve, Achieve, Invest, and Learn. We will all do what it takes to ensure that every student can serve, achieve, invest, and learn at Scituate High School. Let’s work together to make this the best possible year!
