Welcome to the Harrington Park School District.
As an award-winning school district with a long and proud tradition in excellence in academic and co-curricular activities, the Harrington Park School District values a system of continuous improvement that permeates every aspect of its work in order to become the center of educational excellence. As Superintendent, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the start of a new school year.
The dedicated efforts of teachers, support staff and administrators engage students in rigorous learning opportunities that, when student learning is measured on state and national assessments, they continually score higher than county, state and national averages. These types of assessment scores would not be possible year after year without the dedicated effort by teachers, students and their families, and support from the broader community. Gaining the skills and competencies needed in today’s world requires a joint effort between all groups.
We are committed to providing a challenging curriculum, skilled instruction, and a learning environment that responds to individual student academic needs. Our work is guided by research and the belief that every student is capable of attaining high levels of educational achievement in preparation for meeting the rigorous demands of the twenty-first century.
A very important aspect of the success of our district is the involvement of our parents. We have a very active HSA and our parents participate in many different organizations. Our Board of Education is committed to providing the highest quality education while being sensitive to the economic needs of the community.
As Superintendent I am proud of our district and believe that, our students are offered the finest quality education available. Our goal is to help each student to achieve his or her fullest potential in an academically challenging and emotionally nurturing environment. We are all fortunate to be part of a professional community that approaches its work with optimism and a sense of possibility. We have a team of dedicated administration, talented educators, and committed support staff, involved families and supportive community members, working in partnership to strengthen our educational excellence.
If you have questions, please feel free to contact me or the person in our district who can directly answer your questions.
As we look to the future, we need to believe in the power that is behind this wonderful district and the amazing things that occur on a daily basis in Harrington Park. Together WE ARE… HP.
I am honored to be associated with such a fine district and I look forward to the Spartans “Leading the Way”.
