Dear Newark Vocational High School Families and Students,
Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! I hope this letter finds you and your loved ones healthy and safe! I am thrilled to be writing to you as I proudly begin my second year as Principal of Newark Vocational High School, and to also introduce a new member of our leadership team. In addition to Vice Principals Mr. Izzo, Ms. Gill, and Mr. Ramos, Department Chairs Ms. Nascimento, Ms. Saberwal, Mr. Malpass and Ms. Petty, we have now added Department Chair Thomas Duncan to our staff! I am excited that not only are we fully staffed as a leadership team, but also as a school! This year we will continue the work we began together to build our core values and truly define who we are as Eagles. As a result of our successes last year which include increasing our overall daily attendance percentage, improving academic achievement, and decreasing our discipline infractions, we will continue using the term “Soaring to New Heights” as a predictor of continuing our upward trajectory to greatness. Remember, we succeed so we can continue to soar!
The mission of Newark Vocational High School is to provide a rigorous curriculum to prepare students for a path towards college and career readiness by working with the Newark Vocational village of parents and community partners. We seek to develop the most creative and innovative students by having a dedicated staff that conveys high expectations, and prepares students to be globally competitive.
The vision of Newark Vocational High School is to promote collaborations with all stakeholders. The PTSO, Student Council, Faculty/Staff, Industry, Post-Secondary Educators, and the City of Newark constituents. We believe that every voice in the conversation is valuable and contributes to our school community’s development and progress. Our collective potential is unlimited. The Eagles will soar to unimaginable heights and achievements.
