Letter from our new Principal (Carta del nuevo Director.docx)
Dear Roswell High School Community,
I am very excited and privileged to begin as the new principal at Roswell High School on July 1, 2017.
Over the last few weeks, I have had several opportunities to visit the school where I met several faculty and staff members, watched the football team in 7-on-7 competitions, and even had my truck washed by the cheerleaders! Most impressively, I felt welcomed and immediately sensed the strong community spirit for which Roswell High School is famous.
I truly want to thank retiring Principal Jerome Huff for all of his efforts to make this transition as smooth as possible. On June 30th, Mr. Huff will retire after over thirty years in education, most of it in the Roswell area. I wish him all the best as he enters this next phase of his life.
Roswell will be the third high school where I have served as principal. I previously served as principal at Hillgrove High School in Powder Springs and, most recently, at Riverwood International Charter School in Sandy Springs. My career in education also includes time as an Assistant Principal at Pope High School and teaching social studies at Avondale and Campbell High Schools.
Over the next few weeks, I look forward to learning as much as I can about Roswell High School and the supporting community. I will be hosting a "Meet and Greet" in the Roswell theater at 7:00 PM on July 18, 2017. During this time, I will introduce myself in more detail and answer any questions you may have. I invite all faculty, staff, students, parents, and community members who wish to attend. If you can't make it, do not worry as more opportunities to meet with me will be scheduled in the future.
To learn more about the Roswell community, I have prepared an online survey. Please take the anonymous survey .
Again, I want to thank everybody for the very warm welcome that I have received. I look forward to meeting everybody and beginning what is going to be a great 2017-2018 school year.
Enjoy the remainder of your summer,
Robert Shaw, Ed. D
