Letter From The Principal
February 10, 2014
Dear West Ranch Students and Families,
Last Friday I submitted my letter of resignation for the purpose of retirement. It is hard for me to believe that I will be leaving West Ranch High School at the end of June. The thirty-eight years I have been an educator for the William S. Hart Union High School District have flown past. By far the most rewarding years of my career have been having the honor of being your principal at West Ranch High School from 2003 – 2014. My first year as your principal was spent building the school and hiring the staff. In the summer of 2004, West Ranch opened in 12 portable classrooms and some borrowed classrooms at Rancho Pico Junior High School. Every day as students came to school they watched the construction of their 52 acre, 80 million dollar campus being built across the street.
Over the past 10 years West Ranch students have accepted our mission of Relationships, Rigor, and Relevance, and we quickly grew to be an academic powerhouse earning the highest test scores in Northern Los Angeles County.
I am so grateful for the relationships that we have built over the years and for the positive impact you have had on my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
The position of Principal at West Ranch High School will be posted in early March and a selection should be made by the end of April.
It is with a grateful heart that I leave knowing that I have done my best and now it is time for others to do better.
All the best,
West Ranch High School
