Trojan Family,

It is my pleasure, honor, and privilege to join the J.P. Taravella family as your new Principal 2018-2019.  I have devoted over 18 years to Broward County Schools as a teacher and administrator combined and I am so excited to step into my new role as your very proud principal.  I look forward to getting to know all of you as I immerse myself in the culture of this great school.

I have joined a team that is committed to establishing a balanced school environment that allows students to thrive academically and socially. Our curriculum, course offerings, partnerships, relationships, and extra-curricular activities are key levers toward supporting students in their social-emotional development and preparing them for college, career, and life.  We pride ourselves on offering students a fulfilling high school experience that will afford them multiple post-secondary opportunities globally.

All great schools have strong connections with the families and communities they serve, sharing in the responsibility of educating our students.  We welcome healthy partnerships with families, as it is imperative that educators and parents join forces to provide a rich and supportive educational experience for our students.  

Wishing everyone a healthy, happy, and successful school year. GO TROJANS!
