Dear QMHS Families & Community Members,

I am honored to serve as the Principal of QMHS where I work collaboratively with a dedicated staff that provides a myriad of opportunities for student learning and success. With over twenty-eight years of experience in education, I remain committed to the personal growth and achievement of each and every student and am dedicated to bring my passion, enthusiasm, and expertise to further enhance our strong educational programs, promote equity, and foster diversity amongst our school body.

QMHS is a truly special institution that is dedicated to “Panther Pride'' amongst our staff, students, and families. We strive to offer every student the opportunity to explore interests, challenge themselves, and achieve academically through our wide program offerings. At QRMHS every student has the opportunity to engage in a large selection of programs such as Advanced Placement; International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme; our Distinguished with Honors NJROTC program; Innovative Pathways learning experiences, and robust offerings in Music, Visual Arts, and additional elective classes. In addition to our wealth of academic opportunities, we also offer our students extensive opportunities in athletic, extracurricular activities, and clubs to round out their experience at QMHS.

Through our numerous offerings and opportunities it is our hope that together we will continue to build a strong community that celebrates diversity, fosters collaboration, embraces individuality and inclusivity, and prepares our students for a strong future at the professional and personal level. Our vision for our graduates emphasizes our school’s core values of Respect, Responsibility, Resilience, and Innovation, as foundational pillars for students to become responsible citizens and members of our global society.

Building and maintaining strong relationships is at the core of our educational philosophies. I seek the input and ideas of our staff, students, and families and believe that collaboration is key to our success. As we continue to cultivate a sense of community, I will ensure that every family feels welcomed and connected. I encourage you to share your thoughts and aspirations for our school as your feedback and input are invaluable in our effort to create an exceptional learning environment. Should you have any questions or ideas to share, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at [email protected] or by calling our school office at (978)355-4651. Let’s work together in our journey towards continued student progress, social and emotional growth, and academic success. Thank you for your continued partnership and commitment.
