Principal's Message


Welcome to another exciting school year at Placer High School.  As I enter into my ninth year as Placer High’s Principal, I am excited about the adventure we are about to continue for the 2016-2017 school year.

   Placer High School is rich in tradition and community involvement and I am proud to be a part of this school.  As your Principal, I will do my best to maintain the essence that makes Placer High School great and at the same time, continue to introduce new ideas and programs that are aimed at taking the school into the 21st Century.  The world around us is changing but that does not mean we have to abandon old values that have helped create the wonderful environment that is established at Placer High.

  We have to continue to stress the essence of quality within our school and at the same time, reinvigorate the academics, fine arts, electives and extra-curricular activities.  This cannot be done by just one person; it is the culmination of quality work by students, staff, parents, and the community.

   Thank you for taking the time to read this letter.  Your child’s educational experience is very important to you and the staff at Placer take that responsibility very seriously.  Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time.  Have a great year.
Go Hillmen!
