A Message from the Principal
High School is a place where we bring together a diverse population of
students, faculty, staff and families. At Independence we
rely upon teamwork and partnerships to foster success. We work
collaboratively to bring our community the best for our students while
teaching the values of respect, pride and achievement. We set very high
standards for every person on this campus, we provide the tools
necessary to meet those standards and press ourselves to continue
excelling in everything we set out to do.
Each one of us has made a
commitment to being an active life-long learner. We realize that
education does not end, but takes on different forms throughout the
years. We are constantly seeking new learning, in whatever form it
presents itself to us and as a result, we grow each day.
We offer our students the
opportunity to become the best people they can be. High standards for
academic achievement, high standards for behavior and high standards for
personal growth, provide our students with a sturdy foundation from
which to build a limitless future. Every Independence High School
graduate will be more than just ready for the challenges they will face
when they leave our doors, they will be equipped to meet those
challenges head-on and confidently.
I ask you to join me in making this the best educational experience for all of us. Let's have a great year together!
