Hello Fremont School Community,
I am so excited to enter my first year serving as the Principal at Fremont Academy of Engineering and Design. Fremont Academy is a 7-12 grade National Academy Foundation (NAF) learning community. Our mission is to provide every student a science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) focus that is academically challenging and appropriate. We aim to design learning experiences for students which are collaborative, problem/project based, hands-on, kinesthetic and connected to industry and the world outside of school. In addition to our core based classes, all students in each grade level will have a STEM curricula elective class (Project Lead The Way) as part of their schedule each year. Additionally, we offer a wide range of Advanced Placement (AP), Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) and Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses.
Fremont Academy continues to evolve and grow in dynamic ways to meet the needs of current students. With the rapidly changing landscape in higher education and the workforce, we are well-aware of the need to keep pace with technology use and applications in learning. All students at Fremont Academy will receive 1:1 learning devices/chrome books during the first semester, which they will be able to utilize in school and at home to enrich and support learning.
We also recognize and value the importance of creating a positive learning and social environment for all students. Fremont Academy is committed to teaching and reinforcing positive behaviors, where doing the right thing is recognized and appreciated with our established Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) program.
We have dedicated teachers, counselors and support staff who will continue to work diligently to support students in all aspects of campus life. I look forward to partnering with the faculty, staff, parents, students and community to hear your ideas about our next steps as a school. I am honored to join the Fremont Academy of Engineering and Design family and learning community.
