Assistant Principal Message

Welcome to Cape Hatteras Secondary School of Coastal Studies, a community of learners!  We are very proud of our students and staff.  The teachers and administrative team hold the highest standards for all students at CHSS.  High expectations for student respect, responsibility, and integrity help create a positive learning environment where all students feel enthusiastic about their school experiences.  

We expect all students to be prepared for success in college and in their careers.  The dynamic combination of our professional educators, dedicated parents and community members assure that all students reach their maximum potential and become lifelong learners.  Together we can create a school community that will prepare our children to thrive in a global society.  

My goal as the assistant principal is simple.  At the end of our students’ high school experience, I want to shake their hands as they walk across the stage at graduation.  I want to send them off to college or the workplace satisfied in knowing that they are educated and well-prepared for any challenge or adversity that arises.  

I look forward to serving the teachers, staff, students, parents, and community of Cape Hatteras Secondary School.  I am confident that we will have a successful year!
