Dear Demo Community;
It is with great pride and excitement that I welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year! Given the chance to lead “The School of Champions” is such an honor that I don't take lightly. On behalf of the Jefferson High School team, we want to say “Welcome back!”
As we begin this new school year, we will be sure to send communication regarding our updates:
Attendance Policy & Support
Academic Policy & Support
Drug & Alcohol Policy & Support
And a host of other topics as we begin the year
As a learning community, we will reinforce rigor, respect, and responsibility to your students. As a community of educators, we are driven by the individual success and growth of our students. Our staff takes great pride and honor in educating, inspiring, and motivating your student(s).
As the principal of Jefferson High, Middle College for Advanced Studies, I believe that it is my responsibility to maintain and to continue to build a supportive and collaborative spirit at our school. Together as a school community, we will build on the traditions of the past and meet the challenges of the future in innovative and exciting ways.
Again, I am excited to lead this community!!! Let's have a FANTASTIC YEAR!!!!!
Demos I Say!

Harrison Park, which transitioned from a K-8 to a middle school this fall, recently held a school-wide vote for a new mascot. According to Principal Leah Dickey, these first few months as a middle school have been pivotal for students as they navigate the new exciting normal and establish an identity as a school and community. Picking a mascot has been an important part of that journey.
Principal Phu Dao is many things to the students and staff of Roseway Heights Middle School: mentor, role model, champion, friend. Ask anyone who has learned from and 皇家华人ed with him and they will tell you that he has dedicated his entire career to advocating for students, families, and educators. And now he’s being honored for that dedication.
Courageous Conversation, a Washington, D.C.-based non-profit that 皇家华人s with individuals and institutions to address racial disparities through sustained, fruitful dialogue, has named Principal Dao this year’s recipient of the Dr. Charles Hopson Racial Equity Principal Leadership Award.
Bird watching, Lego robotics, gardening, mindful art, coding, running and walking, the high-stakes world of self-governance. It’s all in a morning’s 皇家华人 for the students of Skyline K-8, where every Wednesday begins with participation in one of the school’s many C.A.S. clubs.
We need our community and PAT’s bargaining team to recognize that we are not unwilling to accept their proposal: we are unable. Even the proposal we have made will require at least $45 million in structural budget cuts over the next three years.
