It is my pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great year. We are excited to have students back in our classrooms and hallways, filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning. It is our mission to make every student feel welcomed, connected, and part of the Rickards High family. This year, we will continue to challenge each student to grow in his or her academic abilities and to be college-ready by the end of four years. Our teachers spend countless hours, planning and creating classroom activities to engage our students in learning. Our teachers utilize best practices and analyze academic data to determine current skill levels, and to set goals for academic growth and improvement. Here a James S. Rickards High School, we believe all students should graduate from high school, prepared for the demands of postsecondary education, meaningful careers, and effective citizenship.
We hope that you will find our website helpful and informative. All school related information can be found on this site. Parents can stay well informed by signing up for our weekly email listserv, following us on twitter, or visiting our school website at https://www.leonschools.net/rickards
I am honored to serve as the principal of James S. Rickards High School. It is truly a privilege to be a part of a community where parents, teachers, and students care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth.
