A Message from Our Principal

Dear Staff, Students, and Parents,

I look forward to meeting each of you and getting to know you personally.

To tell you a little about myself, I grew up in a small rural community, population 2,500, in Southern Oregon. I have been working with students for 17 years as a counselor, coach, and teacher, and I have served as a school administrator for seven years. I received my bachelor's degree from Western Oregon University and my master's degree in educational leadership from Point Loma Nazarene University. Throughout my life, I have enjoyed exploring the outdoors, athletics, theater, and music.

We are working to accomplish great things together. Building strong relationships will be at the forefront of our success together. I invite everyone to make an effort to step toward our staff and myself and help develop a positive foundation of care, openness, and support for one another.

Feel free to stop by the office or give us a call if you have any questions or concerns.

With Care,

Jeff Baker

Jeff Baker, Principal
