         On behalf of the entire Knollwood Preparatory Academy community, I would like to welcome you to the 2019-2020 academic year!  I am honored to serve in the position as principal and I am looking forward to working with you to provide the best possible educational program for your child.  Our extraordinary teachers, dedicated support staff, and I are planning for a rewarding year filled with rich learning experiences for your child(ren).  Our focus is on building a strong partnership between staff, parents, and students to allow every child to flourish and reach his/her academic potential.  Together we will open the door to endless opportunities for all students in our school as they become college and workplace ready.
