Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! It is with much enthusiasm that I join the Barringer team, having the privilege of serving as the principal of Barringer Academy of the Arts & Humanities, I am very excited about the school year. I look forward to working with every member of our school community and building on the success of our scholars.
I cannot emphasize enough how much I care about our students and how dedicated I am to ensuring that they have a strong academic foundation that will equip them for success in college and countless post-secondary endeavors. Hence, I am strongly committed to ensuring that every student has the support, motivation and quality instruction they need to meet and exceed Common Core State Standards.
The administrative team and I have exciting plans for all of our arts and academic programs: dance, music, math, student leadership, theatre, history and more. We will continue to improve our comprehensive support and intervention programs to help all students achieve academic excellence and surmount any challenge before them. Our school will continue to ensure a safe, nurturing and positive learning environment that will promote the social and emotional growth of each student.
In this regard, our staff and administrators will continue to foster and strengthen partnerships with every parent/guardian. Moreover, our staff will provide consistent opportunities for parents to play a vital role in their child’s education and provide us with feedback to help our school improve.
I look forward to a wonderful school year and working with all stakeholders to ensure the success of our scholars.
