Principal's Message

Learning is a lifelong experience!

We all had tough times when we were in high school. We did not know what we wanted to do with our lives, we did not understand the importance of certain subjects, we did not see how it would all come together eventually. I was no different. 

Even in the most doubtful of times of success, I persevered, I went back, resolved to succeed, and developed a strategy. I graduated from University and went on to Teacher’s College. To this day, I am a student, improving my knowledge of education delivery and management. I learned to build self-esteem, grounded in self-awareness rather than image. My experience allows me to understand students’ mind-set – those far from home and those who are home, those with learning differences and those who learn conventionally.   

I understand that choosing a school can be one of the most challenging and difficult decisions a family needs to make. I would encourage each family to look for the school that best suits the needs and interests of their child. A school should offer an abundance of opportunities for students to explore, experience, learn, find their strengths and to become the very best person they can. 

We are a Community...

Connected by students, their families, teachers and administrators.  As a principal, I strive to encourage intellectual bonds, stimulate curiosity and be the academic catalyst for this community. Students, teachers and parents are always welcome to talk to me. 

I’m proud to say that at Keystone, we have a collaborative learning environment. We teach our students to master learning. Our teachers are creative with instruction and continually learn about how our students best learn. We empower everyone in our community, push intellectual boundaries, enjoy the freedom to experiment, strive for personal bests and create leadership opportunities. We are an academic team with our very own brand of "edutainment".  

I warmly welcome you to visit and discover firsthand what makes Keystone International Schools' education so special.
