Principal's Message

Parents, Guardians, and Students:

In the world of education, the 2020-2021 school year was globally about fear of the unknown, learning alternative pathways, and creating new structure. Gone was the amazing momentum we saw with expansion of academic programming, co-curricular and extra-curricular opportunities for which May River was known. However, our return to school in January 2021 set the stage for regaining the momentum we experienced leading up to that time. While we still live with unknowns, we do have opportunity. To that end, I encourage you all to engage. Engage your teachers in the classroom, but also engage in the immense athletic, co-curricular and extra-curricular opportunities for which May River has been known.

As May River “re-engages” those opportunities to create well-rounded students, we are also excited to explore new opportunities together. May River will add Cambridge programming to an already diverse selection in Advanced Placement opportunities. We will now have the ability for students to earn the Capstone AND Cambridge diplomas or take courses “ala carte” in these programs. Our goal is expansion, with one additional AP course in 2021-22 and five Cambridge opportunities. Our goal is for ALL students to have access to rigorous curriculum in a wide selection of academic offerings.

Research suggests that the best predictor of academic success is “connectedness” to a school through activities beyond the classroom. As such, we encourage you to be active in the many clubs, athletics and co-curricular opportunities we offer. You will see a concerted effort to advertise these opportunities and opportunities to engage even during the school day. We believe in our students and we believe in our community. Taking advantage of our return to normalcy is your best opportunity to believe in your potential as well. 

Sincerely, 
Todd Bornscheuer, Principal
