Dear Families,

It is both an honor and a privilege to personally welcome back our returning students and to open our doors and arms to the class of 2022. This is a special moment for me, as I have taken over the position of Principal at James Lick High School. Since 1999, I have served as a proud Comet in many different roles and from day 1 it has felt like home.
