Principal's Message

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome everyone back for another exciting school year at Ben Bolt-Palito Blanco High School. We are excited to have our students back in our classrooms and hallways filling them with energy and enthusiasm for learning. It should be our mission to have every student feel welcomed, loved, and a part of the Badger family. My challenge to you is to continue to strive to ensure every student that graduates from Ben Bolt-Palito Blanco High School is college and career ready.

This year we are going to continue to make every effort to raise the bar to help each student grow in their academic abilities. Through the use of research based best practices and student data we will create lessons that help engage our students in the classrooms. Through our many extracurricular activities on campus, our students will become better prepared for the demands of post-secondary education, meaningful careers and effective citizenship. 

It is truly an honor to serve as principal of Ben Bolt-Palito Blanco High School. Together we will work every day to make every student better in some small way. I look forward to working with each and every one this school year.
