I am honored and humbled to have the privilege of serving as the principal of Meade High School. Meade has established a tradition of excellence based upon a foundation of values, a supportive community, and outstanding academic and extracurricular programs. Meade High School is an IB World School, offering the IB Middle Years Programme to all students in grades nine and ten and the IB Diploma Programme to a cohort of students in grades eleven and twelve. We are committed to offering students an education that prepares them for success in the 21st century, both in post-secondary studies and the workforce. Meade is committed to graduating students who can communicate effectively, not only in English but in a second language as well. Additionally, students should also be able to make connections between what they learn in the classroom and the real world, both here at home and with other cultures around the world. Meade also offers our students several other programs that enhance their experience in an IB World School. We serve students’ diverse interests and needs through our Homeland Security Signature Program of Studies, AVID, Project Lead The Way, JROTC, a variety of co-curricular activities, and our diverse mentorship programs. Meade High School, though a large school, has a home for each of our students.
I have always wanted to work in a place where every interaction is respectful and every individual is valued and feels valued. If each one of us is committed to this goal, we can make this a reality at Meade. It will take all of us working together to create a mutually respectful school climate.
The staff is committed to ensuring a positive experience for each of our students and our Meade families. Through rigorous academic programs and our daily interactions, we support our students, their interests, as well as their social and personal development so they are prepared for the challenges of life and the opportunities which await them after high school. Please do not hesitate to let us know if there is anything we can do to support your son/daughter throughout the school year. I look forward to
