Welcome all stakeholders to Zama American Middle-High School (ZMHS).
ZMHS is a DoDEA school of excellence and exhibits a top-notch educational environment. I am deeply proud to be your principal. As the school's primary educator, I can state without reservation that every member of this school has a strong sense of Trojan Pride. I also know that all of our stakeholders, especially the students, do too.
We are fortunate at ZMHS to have an excellent cadre of educators who have a vast wealth of instructional expertise, great respect for their students, and take deep pride in their chosen profession. We are eager to begin developing relationships with each of our students and the families. As professional educators, we recognize that the educational needs of our students are the foundation of our daily work. Our students are the reason why we come to work every day.
All of the faculty and staff at ZMHS look forward to being your educational leaders and being a vital and supportive resource in the Camp Zama community. As the principal, I invite all stakeholders to schedule time to meet with me and discuss the opportunities or concerns unique to providing educational services to our students.
Please do not hesitate to share ideas about how I can serve you better. I have a powerful expectation for a productive and dynamic year. I cannot wait to share my excitement with you.
