Message From Our Principal
Posted on 2021/10/22

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! As the new principal of Cortez High School, a school well known for its outstanding faculty and staff, high academic standards, and strong community support, I am honored and excited to join you. Together, we will tackle challenges and experience success.

Community involvement creates great schools. As principal, I commend the Cortez High School community for showcasing academic excellence. Excellence at Cortez, however, is not limited to academics. The opportunity to represent Red and Black on the playing field, on stage in theater productions, in band and choir concerts, in dance performances, within visual arts, and through club participation requires determination, dedication, and discipline. Extracurricular excellence is a challenging pursuit that demands the balance of academic and team/club responsibilities.

None of us could achieve excellence without support. Thank you, parents and community members! I encourage you to become an active member in the Cortez community, as parent and community involvement is vital to a safe, successful neighborhood school and its many programs that affect young lives directly and positively.

I look forward to a successful 2021-2022 school year. Go Colts!
