• Principal's Message

    Mrs. Padura-Smith

    Dragon Family,

    I am honored to serve as Principal of this dynamic institution. Stranahan High School’s history is steeped in a rich culture of collaboration and excellence.  My faculty and I are committed to providing our students with a world-class education. To that end, we inspire each student to reach their highest potential through personalized, innovative and authentic instruction, focused on developing the skills, and ethics required for responsible citizenship and post-secondary preparedness. My promise as Principal is to empower my students and provide them with the support and resources needed to engage in the world that awaits them!

    I am a firm believer that the foundation for our students’ success is based upon a strong partnership among students, staff, parents, and community. Active parent participation is essential to our success! I am looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our students can achieve their highest potential. I value input from school community members and encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns or if you just want to introduce yourself.

    I am looking forward to an exciting school year. If there is anything I can do to assist in your educational pursuits please do not hesitate to contact me, as my door is always open to you!

    Be Determined, Be Fearless, Be Extraordinary, #BeADragon!

    With Warm Regards,

    Michelle Padura, Principal
