A Message from Our Principal

My goal as an educator is that every afternoon, kids are chomping at the bit to come back tomorrow.

Dear Parents and Students,

It is exciting and rewarding to serve as the principal of Ridgefield High School! It is a wonderful place to work, and I truly enjoy my partnerships with faculty, parents, and students.

Our mission is to enable all students to become self-directed and self-reflective learners. In a climate of trust, we engage them in opportunities to improve their academic performance, develop their interpersonal skills, and achieve an understanding of their roles and responsibilities as citizens of our democratic society. It is important to me that all students feel that our staff knows them well and that we continue to challenge them to grow both academically and socially. 

We provide a nurturing environment in which students feel safe to explore new learning and challenges while still knowing there are caring, supportive adults to join in celebrating their success and guiding them through difficult times. As partners in our endeavor, thank you for your support. I welcome your comments and suggestions.

Sincerely,

Stacey Gross
