Superintendent's Message

To the Byram Hills Community,

The faculty, staff, and administration are proud to provide the children in our schools with opportunities to learn that are paramount to a distinctive educational experience. Our goal is to Create the Leaders of the Next Generation. To that end, student knowledge and experiences must serve to advantage students to enter the world educationally fortified and globally competent.

The implications of state and federal mandates have the potential to create school environments that lose the focus on independence, creativity, exploration, and resilience for children. At Byram Hills, we remain student focused, with robust and evolving curricular, athletic, and extracurricular opportunities for student growth. Please follow the link to the Special Recognition document, which will familiarize you with our successes and trajectory for growth.

I began my career at Byram Hills in 1990 and have served the school community in the capacity of English teacher, English Chairperson, Assistant Principal, Assistant to the Superintendent, and Assistant Superintendent. My belief in the education that Byram Hills offers to our families led me to the role as your Superintendent of Schools. Your children are our mission, and I speak on behalf of the faculty, staff, and administration in thanking you for your collaboration as we work together for a most worthy cause.
