On behalf of the Board of School Directors and the outstanding faculty and staff of the Shikellamy School District, I welcome you. It is an honor and privilege to serve as superintendent for the Shikellamy School District. The District has a long-standing tradition of academic excellence, coupled with a strong commitment to extra-curricular and athletic opportunities for all students. Here at Shikellamy, we possess a powerful sense of school pride in our school, our community, and respect all students as individuals.

The foremost mission is “The mission of the Shikellamy School District is to challenge and excite learners to be all that they can be as responsible citizens for the 21st Century.” To achieve our mission I believe:

  • That our top priority is the safety and wellness of our students.

  • That working as a team is how we, as an organization, can achieve greatness.

  • That academic achievement and academic growth for all children is to be held to the highest standard.

  • That every single child can grow in all areas.

  • That positive attitudes lead to positive outcomes.

Our Board of School Directors, administration, and staff are committed to providing the best educational environment within our means. We thank you for your continued support through contributions to the activities and interests of our students, attendance at school functions, and participation in school improvements.
