Principal's Message


    Dear Gator Family,

    It is with great honor and pride that I greet you as the Principal of "A" rated Everglades High School!

    At Everglades, we believe all students deserve a quality education that meets academic, civic and social standards. The faculty and staff are committed to providing a rigorous and engaging curriculum for all students to learn in a community of respect and personal responsibility.

    I am committed to continuously seeking ways to improve the work that is done in the school and to provide opportunities for everyone in the school community to lead, learn and grow. Every student can excel when we have high expectations, when we respect their potential and diverse cultures, when we find ways to view diversity as strength and when we provide ample support for students to meet and exceed those high expectations.
    We are very proud of our various innovative programs that provide a venue for every child to find his or her niche. Innovation in teaching and learning sets our school apart from all others. Our PASL Academy provides a personalized approach to learning, focusing on the social and emotional needs of each student. While this program is designated for our ninth grade students, our entire school has adopted a PASL culture. We recognize the importance of teaching the whole child and meeting each child's needs with a personalized approach  Our Firefighter, Sports Medicine, Project RED (Engineering), FBI, NAF (Health Science) and Cambridge Academies have been highly successful in tapping into students' greatest strengths and interests by providing increased rigor and relevance within each area.  This opens doors to college admissions, scholarship opportunities and paid inernships.

    We encourage your involvement in our school community knowing that through parental and community involvement, we can invest in our students' futures by preparing them for a challenging and global society.

    I want to greatly encourage and welcome you to visit our school to become an active member of our Gator Family and share the experience of educational success.

    Go Gators!
