Principal's Welcome

Dear Students, Staff and Parents:

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year and our new website! Our commitment at Richard R Green High School for Teaching is to provide a safe and intellectually challenging environment that will empower students to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers and inspired learners prepared to thrive in the twenty-first century. Within our hallways walk the future educators and leaders of the next generation!

High standards and expectations for each student in regard to academic performance, extra-curricular activities, and responsible citizenship are the foundation of our school. It is with pride that we encourage each of our students to commit to expand their own learning to be the inspired educators and social leaders of tomorrow.   It is the warm and caring contribution our students and staff gift to our school community that makes Richard R Green High School an exceptional learning community. Participation in academic and extra-curricular programs and a willingness to act responsibly as an individual within our educational environment are the factors that enable all to have a successful and enjoyable year.

Effective teachers:

  • Create opportunities for intellectual risk-taking, collaboration, problem-solving, and application of classroom learning to real life situations;

  • Implement strategies that promote ownership of learning to students;

  • Demonstrate ongoing professional growth in order to increase the quality of instruction;

  • Collaborate with colleagues to share and discuss exemplary practices, interpret student performance data, and design assessments that promote twenty-first century skills.

Successful students:

  • Communicate in a meaningful way for a variety of purposes and audiences;

  • Employ critical and creative thinking skills to solve problems; and

  • Pose questions, examine possibilities, and apply skills to find solutions to real-world issues.

  • Make positive choices related to physical and mental wellness; and

  • Contribute to the local and global community in a collaborative and respectful manner

As the proud principal, I wish you all a wonderful school year. If there questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me and know that my door is always open. I can be reached at
