    Dragon Family,

     Stranahan's Principle

    Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! It is with great pride and excitement that I introduce myself to you as the new principal of Stranahan High School. I am honored to join the Dragon Family and to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of excellence. It is my goal to ensure that we continue to build upon our successes and create a new energy for our school as we challenge ourselves to reach new levels of greatness.


    My staff and I are deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of our students. We will work diligently to provide a safe, supportive and challenging learning environment, where strong relationships will enable us to set high, yet personalized, expectations for ALL students. Our mission is to provide an engaging, enriching and rigorous curricular program that will prepare our students to meet the demands of their post-secondary plans-whether it is college or career.


    I am a firm believer that the foundation for our students’ success is based on the 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 new 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!
