Dear Glencoe Families,
My name is Claudia Ruf and I am Principal of Glencoe High School. The 2019-2020 school year will be both exciting and challenging. As you know, we are under construction and renovation. This will continue until Fall of 2020. Once you see the building and the changes you will be as excited as we are.
Along with staff, I will work hard to continue the legacy of success established at Glencoe by building strong relationships with parents, students, staff, and community partners. We will focus on fostering a nurturing safe environment for our students, use of data to inform instruction, consistent implementation of newly adopted English Language Arts curriculum and scope and sequence to increase students’ achievement, by providing exciting and challenging enrichment opportunities for all students.
The diverse student population at Glencoe High School provides everyone with an awareness and appreciation for all cultures. The Glencoe staff are passionate, dedicated educators who set high standards of achievement so our young scholars can be successful. We are determined to drive rigorous engagement in literacy, writing, math, and science, and provide individualized opportunities for student growth. To ensure this happens, we collaborate regularly around student learning, challenge one another, and seek to continuously improvement in teaching and learning. We set high expectations for ourselves and our young scholars, and work together in the process of achieving those expectations.
Thank you for trusting us with the education and caring development of your child. If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or me a call. Family support is a critical link to student achievement. We want to hear from you!
