Welcome to West High School!
I feel honored to serve as principal at Merrill F. West High School. I am currently in my 8th school year at West High. I served 4 years as an Assistant Principal, and I am now serving in my 4th year as Principal. Before working at West High School I taught high school English and also worked in the shipping/receiving and warehousing industry. I have a Bachelor of Arts in English, a Master of Education, a Master of Science in Education Administration, and a Doctorate of Education through University of the Pacific.
West High has amazing students and a number of programs to offer those who attend our school. During my time here, I have heard from many students and families that West High is a place where students can be comfortable with who they are. No matter what their background, they feel accepted here. I am so proud of our school and students for making West High a place where everyone is welcome. I believe we have a very inclusive culture, and that all students can find a way to connect with the West High School community.
Our mission at West High is to provide all students with a safe, caring and engaging learning environment in preparation for college and careers.
