Letter from the Principal


Hello Roseville High School Community!
I am excited to be involved in the great work that is happening at Roseville High School. I've been in public education for seventeen years as a teacher, a coach, an instructional specialist, and a principal – almost exclusively in the Elk Grove Unified School District. I plan to use my experience to continue educating the young people of this community and continue to build a great school… with your help.



I understand quality education as both a parent of my own high school children and as a professional educator. I know that Roseville High School is an amazing place and being the principal here was an opportunity I couldn't pass up. In 2013:

  • 72% of the students at RHS met the UC/CSU eligibility requirements
  • RHS students plan to attend 64 different colleges and universities
  • 375 students took a combined 678 Advanced Placement (AP) exams
  • The AP pass rate was 53% in 18 different AP exams
  • 65% of the seniors carry a Grade Point Average (GPA) above 3.0
  • RHS consistently hovers around 800 in the state’s Academic Performance Index (API)
  • RHS earned a 2014 Silver Medal from U.S. News and World Report’s “Best High Schools”

But being a great school is more than just GPA and API. Roseville High School is a great place to work and learn because Roseville High School cares about the complete academic and social development of every child.

  • We are a family of dedicated teachers, counselors, support staff and administrators
  • We have an amazing array of performing arts classes, including dance, theater and band
  • We are an AVID demonstration school – Advancement Via Individual Determination!
  • We have a Student Athletics program that competes with anyone, anytime, anywhere!
  • We are connected through Student Activities – Once a Tiger, Always a Tiger!
  • We have Career and Technical Education Programs in Culinary Arts, Fashion and Computers
  • We are 102 years old… and We are The High School On the Hill

I thank you for the opportunity to lead this high school in your community. I value your trust in what we do. I look forward to partnering with you in educating ALL students.
