Welcome to East Hampton High School!

Thank you for taking the time to visit the Principal’s page of the East Hampton Public School’s website. I am truly excited to be leading a school that has a dedicated and talented staff, supportive and involved parents that value education, and a community with the rich traditions that East Hampton has to offer. I am first and foremost a husband and father of two high school aged sons. I come to East Hampton after serving as the Assistant Principal of Canton High School for the past six years. Prior to that, I was a social studies teacher for eleven years at Bolton High School in Bolton, CT and four years at Whittier Regional Vocational Technical High School in Haverhill, MA. During each stage of my 21 year (and counting) journey in education, I have enjoyed every second of working with students and families to bring out the very best in each student to ensure that they are prepared for the next steps in their educational journey.

At East Hampton High School, we value Compassion, Innovation, Perseverance, Collaboration, and Active Learning. These values are embedded into all that we do both in and outside of the classroom. Our students have the opportunity to join a wide variety of clubs, athletic teams, musical programs and service organizations. I encourage all students to take advantage of these opportunities which will help them to develop into well rounded individuals.

I would like to thank the many faculty, staff and community members who have stopped by to introduce themselves during my first days as your principal. I truly appreciate your words of welcome and encouragement. I will continue to meet with parents during the year through the PPAG/PTO (Principal’s Parent Advisory Group) The purpose of this group is to provide a forum for parents to meet directly with the high school principal in order to ask questions and bring forward any concerns during the school year. Our first meeting will be September 17th at 5:30 in the high school “T-BELL.” Please look to the Events section of our website for all future meetings and events that will be taking place at EHHS.

I am looking forward to continuing the rich traditions of East Hampton High School and the community. I am truly honored and excited for the opportunity to lead EHHS and thank you for your support throughout the school year.

We look forward to a successful school year for both students and faculty. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns.
