    July 2018


    Dear Bobcat Community,

    Welcome to another amazing year! I am honored to serve as Central’s new principal. This is my 21st year in education and my experience on several campuses has prepared me to take on this very important leadership role. Our major goals this year include rebranding Central, improving school-wide systems and building positive relationships among all. My hope is that we will work collaboratively to make Central High School the school of choice in this community.

    As we begin a new year, it is important to acknowledge the numerous items to celebrate at Central including improved student achievement, increased college application completions as well as an increase in scholarship earnings. Additionally, students improved in 5 of 6 areas on the AzMERIT, and the Spring of 2018 Junior ACT results showed strong gains. We are very proud of our students and their demonstration of academic achievement.

    In addition to assessment score improvements, Central will be undergoing an extensive modernization project that will include some exciting structural changes. Construction plans are currently under way. By the end of the school year, the plan is to have a modernized front exposure along Central Avenue along with addressing some security improvements through a remodel of the registration area. The Culinary Arts areas will be expanded along with a cafeteria remodel. These are exciting times for the Bobcats!
