Principal's Message

I am delighted to extend a warm welcome to our high school community. As the newly appointed principal of Radford High School, it is my honor and privilege to be a part of your students' high school journey. I am a 1998 graduate of Radford High School and I am passionate about giving back to my community and school. I am forever grateful to continue my career as a Bobcat. 


Radford High School is not just a place of learning; it is a community where dreams are nurtured, talents are honed, and lifelong friendships are created. At RHS we strive to create a nurturing and inclusive environment, where every student feels valued and supported. I am looking forward to working with teachers and staff as we continue our commitment to the RCPS motto of "Excellence in Education, Every Student, Every Day!"


We firmly believe in the power of collaboration and open communication. As parents and guardians, you are an integral part of our school community, and we encourage your active involvement in your child's education. Throughout the academic year, we will offer various opportunities for you to engage with our school, through parent-teacher conferences, workshops, and school events. We highly encourage you to take advantage of these occasions to connect with our staff, gain insights into your child's progress, and actively participate in their educational journey. 


Once again, I extend my heartfelt welcome to all families. Together, I am looking forward to a successful and memorable academic year.
