Superintendent's Message

At the completion of the 2016 graduation ceremonies, it was evident that Worcester Public Schools staff, family members, and students showed great pride in their accomplishments. It was especially inspirational for me to see the happiness in the faces of each student as they earned their diplomas. The experience of graduating over 1,500 students, listening to student speeches and shaking each hand confirmed my resolve to ensure that all future student classes graduate.

Congratulations Healthy Start Schools!

Superintendent's Message

This week I spoke at the graduations of South High Community School and then North High. I was impressed at the talent of the drum majors as we marched down the aisle at the North High graduation. The pride of the families and the 286 graduates as they received their North High diplomas inspired all in attendance. The South High graduation was a milestone for me as it marked the closing of one chapter of my 38 years of service to the children of the South Quadrant. I will carry all the stories of resilience and success that were made possible by the focused work of the staff and administration.
