  • A Message from the Superintendent

    I am honored and excited to be leading Hendry County Schools. Hendry County is blessed with beautiful natural scenery, rich agriculture history and diverse cultures. From Lake Okeechobee, the Caloosahatchee River, multiple state forests and beautiful farm land makes Hendry County a great place to work, live and play!

    My goals for Hendry County Schools are pretty simple. We will strive to be a high achieving school district. We will provide safe, orderly and inviting schools where students can take full advantage of their capacity to learn.  We will create an educational culture where teachers grow and use their wisdom to benefit our students. We will focus on increasing student achievement and opportunities in every school.

    Hendry County Schools are home to some of the best Career and Technical Educational programs available. Our students have a variety of opportunities to learn skills and earn industry certifications that lead to rewarding careers. We also have a wide variety of athletic opportunities that promotes physical fitness and competitions that instills ethics and the dignity of hard work. Additionally, we have many other clubs that promote leadership and citizenship where students make a positive difference in our schools and our community. Our focus on driving up academic achievement coupled with multiple educational opportunities will ensure our students are college and career ready!

    Hendry County Schools enjoys a close relationship with the community, businesses, families, and volunteers. Working together, we understand the importance of helping our students develop essential skills so that their full potential can be realized.

    As Superintendent, I will always maintain an open door policy. Please feel free to contact me anytime at 863-674-4642.
