August, 2019I am pleased to be part of a team of amazing educators at GCHS. The success of our school as a whole can be attributed to the high expectations met by many different parts working together. Our accolades range from academic success, like having the highest percentage of students in the state graduating with an Advanced Regents Diploma, to athletics, where we are state and county champs in multiple sports every year, to music & arts and volunteer service, which include hundreds of our students involved in activities and fundraising that benefit the community near and far.It is important to me that every student feels welcome and comfortable at GCHS on a daily basis. My hope is that the culture of GCHS allows individuals to pursue their studies and participate in activities that are meaningful to them and will help them grow to be more productive and confident.Our theme this year is #BelieveYouCan. It is derived from Teddy's Roosevelt's quote "Believe you can, and you're halfway there". It is another indicator that we all need to be in a positive mental state to move forward and achieve our goals.Our website has lots of information and links to resources. Follow us on Twitter for up to date news and announcements.I am honored by the opportunity to serve the community as GCHS Principal.Thank you,Kevin Steingruebner
I am happy to report that my role in the Principal’s office has begun!
The administrative team at GCHS has a new look and is prepared to serve you and your students fairly and thoughtfully. Mr. Perrotta and I have been working together for the last ten years and are glad to welcome Martin Malone on board. Mr. Malone has previously served as an Assistant Principal in an interim role in the GC Middle School and Stewart School.
Our priority is to make the Garden City HS experience a meaningful and successful one within an environment that is safe and manageable for all of our students. I look forward to continuing the positive impact I have had on the GCHS community, and serving you and the students even better.
I am available during the summer along with other high school staff members to assist with any questions or concerns you have. Our website is continually being updated and has a variety of resources, including information about summer assignments under each department’s homepage. You can also follow our Twitter account for the latest HS related announcements and ongoing notifications. (https://twitter.com/Garden_City_HS)
I look forward to continuing my journey in Garden City and seeing you during the school year!
