Superintendent's Message

I have had the wonderful opportunity to lead Westfield Washington Schools since 2021.  With over four decades of experience in education, I can attest that our staff, students, families, and community members take great pride in their commitment to education. Our school district is home to nearly 10,000 students and 1,500 staff members. We proudly welcome over 1,000 multilingual students representing 96 different countries and 70 languages. Supporting the 21% of Westfield Washington Schools students who rely on free and reduced services is important to us. We understand the positive impact engagement has on our community, from improving mental health to bridging cultural and language barriers. This is why we constantly expand our programming and pathways for diverse learners. We believe in the power of peer-to-peer and mentor relationships and encourage our students to be leaders who demonstrate honesty, compassion, respect, responsibility, and hard work.

The city of Westfield was recently named the 6th fastest-growing city in the U.S.  In 2022, Westfield experienced a 7.7% increase in population bringing the total to 54,605 residents. As a result of this growth, Westfield Washington Schools has become one of Indiana's fastest-growing school districts as well as Westfield’s largest employer.  Our district consists of one early learning center, six elementary schools, one intermediate school, one middle school, and one high school.  Westfield High School, which has an impressive graduation rate of 97.2%, is ranked in the top 3% nationally by U.S. News and World Report. Furthermore, an impressive 84% of its graduates continue on to higher education.  Westfield Washington Schools has earned an "A" rating from the Indiana Department of Education. 

Our dedication to academic excellence, career growth, and overall well-being will help shape competent individuals who will return to Westfield and contribute toward a brighter future.  It is my pleasure to extend a warm welcome to you on behalf of Westfield Washington Schools where our team works in collaboration to ensure high levels of learning and growth for each student, so all of our Rocks are life ready!
