    New Hope-Solebury School District Community Members, 

    It is a distinct honor and privilege to serve as the Superintendent of the New Hope-Solebury School District and to have the opportunity to work with the many dedicated members of the entire school community. New Hope-Solebury School District is a distinguished school district with a long history of educating students in our community who have gone on to be recognized for their achievements in their chosen fields and for their contributions to our community and the broader society. 

    Our school district has been recognized for its comprehensive curriculum, preparing students for colleges and careers, student academic performance and outstanding faculty and staff, and extra-curricular programming by ratings in U.S. News and World Reports, Niche.com, the NAMM Association and others.  We are proud of these achievements, but most importantly we hope to provide an exemplary educational environment for all of our students and build a foundation on which they can achieve future success. 

    New Hope-Solebury has a unique recipe which allows our school district to grow, thrive and support the learning of our students.  We have a strong curriculum, dedicated faculty and staff, hardworking students, and supportive parents and community members.  Despite our small size, our school district is able to provide learning environments which challenge every student, seek to meet their individual needs, and provide learning extensions which enrich their learning and their lives through our programs in athletics, the arts, music, and community engagement.   

    Our students are growing up in a world which is increasingly globally connected and which presents new challenges in education in preparing them for the 21st century and the unique environment that it will create for them in their lives and in the workforce.  The New Hope-Solebury School District takes great pride in committing to excellence for all of our students.  As our mission statement states, we strive to inspire and empower our students to become passionate, confident, life-long learners, with the skills and strength of character to contribute to a diverse and ever-changing world.  We work to ensure our students have the skills and talents they need to meet with success in this ever-changing world. 

    I look forward to collaborating with the members of the New Hope-Solebury School District community to continue the strong educational traditions and to further embrace new initiatives and opportunities which will ensure our students will realize their potential and become the future leaders of our community. I look forward to partnering with you in helping our students to realize their dreams through this amazing educational ecosystem.

    It is a pleasure to serve you as Superintendent of Schools in the New Hope-Solebury School District and I look forward to working with you to ensure our students are challenged and supported in their learning, realize their dreams and achieve success in our school system.
