Principal's Message

Welcome to our Junior/Senior High School!

The term “our” school is not used haphazardly but reflects an understanding that any organization’s success starts with the inclusivity that every student should experience here. In our mission statement, we aim “to provide a safe, cooperative learning environment where all students take pride in learning skills, develop talents, and gain knowledge that prepares them to reach their full potential and become productive members of society.” To achieve this goal, students must become fully engaged in our curricula and extracurricular activities. In meeting our obligation to help you achieve your goals, we want to hear from you directly about what we can add to our current offerings that will enrich your experience here further.

We know that the start of any school year brings opportunities and challenges for students to navigate.  As we work together through the current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, we know that our problems will be more significant for students and families than ever. Be advised that the Westport Junior/Senior High School’s professional staff is here to make sure your educational experience is robust and enriching. As such, our instructors have attended and continue to participate in professional development to improve their pedagogical skills to include online teaching should we have to switch learning platforms. Rest assured that if the time comes to switch from one learning platform to another, we will be ready to transition quickly, minimizing as best as possible to limit learning loss and fulfill the community’s high educational standards that students deserve.

To our students, we will need you to help us transition to the “new normal” that we are currently experiencing due to the current pandemic. In particular, the loss of traditional events that are part and parcel of the middle and high school experience in the past may no longer occur. We can lament this passively or be proactive in looking to substitute for the activities that will no longer be allowed. To achieve this, we will need to hear from you early and often throughout your school career. Let us come together collectively, so we can make sure that your time at the Westport Junior/Senior High School is replete with incredible memories that will last a lifetime.
