PrincipalWelcome to Scituate High    School, 2020-2021, where YOU ARE IMPORTANT! Every student, staff member, and caregiver is important to the overall success that can be achieved at SHS.  Because every student is important, it is vital that students have a voice in the decision-making process of 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 be bringing different 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 it is a lived mission for every student, every day.

This is a different year, one that comes with its own set of challenges and concerns, but the consistent commitment to student progress is that of each and every faculty and staff member at Scituate High School to create that lived experience for students, in person and remotely, that embodies 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.  

I am excited to see, in person and remotely, our students who will join us as freshmen and those in grades 10-12 who will be returning to SHS.  Let’s work together to make it the best possible year!
