Welcome to the White River Valley High School and to our new website. As the new principal starting in July 2022, I am thrilled to be returning to the school where I started my career many years ago.  My goals are for every student to be excited about coming to school and for everyone to find opportunities to learn and grow through our many regular education courses, our flexible pathways options, and our diverse and inclusive extracurricular sports and activities.  I can't wait to meet you all, students, parents and teachers alike, and am looking forward to a successful and prosperous 2022-2023 school year. Please reach out to me at any time with any questions, concerns or comments you may have to improve our school experience
