Welcome to High Point Regional High School,
I believe that education is most successful when built upon an edifice of affirming relationships. When students know that they are important, respected, cared for, and loved, they are more likely to believe in themselves, to strive for excellence, to overcome obstacles, to excel and to persevere. It is such qualities that ensure success, personal fulfillment and noble character -- High Point is deeply committed to the lifetime success of our students and our community.
I believe that educators must inspire a renewed sense of wonder in students: wonder inspires intrinsic motivation so as to passionately pursue knowledge. When students are inspired to believe in themselves and to love learning, the educational experience yields much fruit. I believe that it is our responsibility, as educators, to foster that wonder.
I believe that the curriculum offered at High Point is expansive, rigorous, eclectic and competitive with the best institutions in New Jersey; all of our students learn at a high level. We prepare the children of our community for success in college, career, and life.
It is my personal and professional goal to serve, bless and honor this community with a world-class education of excellence, character and integrity. Strong, dynamic and successful communities are built upon the strength and vibrancy of their educational institutions -- I believe that High Point provides such a dynamic and affirming environment.
