Principal’s Message


Hello RHS Family, 


I would like to take this opportunity to welcome everyone to 2023, and the second half of the 2022-23 school year. As I stated back at the beginning of the school year, it is an honor and a privilege to serve as the Principal of Ravenna High School. It has been a pleasure to re-establish the relationships I had built with our students during their middle school years. It has also been meaningful to reset our focus at RHS to a simple formula for success, which is Attendance + Behavior = Achievement. 


On the attendance front, we are constantly tracking student attendance, and establishing relationships with families of students who are at risk for chronic absenteeism, so that we can create clear plans for these students in order to improve attendance. On the behavior front, we intervene when needed to address behavior concerns, and include families in our response. We believe in praising our students, as well as holding them accountable while utilizing restorative practices when possible to truly address the root cause of any behavior that may disrupt instruction. Finally, on the achievement front, we are diligently working to utilize data collected from various assessment sources so that we can address learning gaps that our students may present. We are committed to offering targeted academic interventions for our students both within the classroom, and during Raven Pride Time, which is our daily intervention period. 


Our main goal remains for ALL RHS students to graduate on schedule, and to be prepared for their futures by being enrolled, enlisted, or employed by the time they walk across the stage at commencement. These four years of high school make up such a small percentage of one’s life journey, yet those four years can and should build a foundation that can be built upon for the decades that follow. We continue to be dedicated to the important work at hand, and look forward to our continued partnership with our students, parents, and the Ravenna community!
