Welcome to Robert Johnson, Interim Principal

Welcome to the West Rutland School.  It is a distinct privilege, pleasure and honor to serve this year as Interim Principal of West Rutland for the 2018-2019 school year.  My prior educational experience includes twelve (12) years as a classroom teacher, five (5) years as a Coordinator or Mathematics and Science and eighteen (18) years as an Elementary Principal, all of which occurred on Long Island in New York State.  Recently in Vermont, I served for six years as Principal of Rutland Northeast School and completed two interim assignments at Rutland Middle School.

My efforts this years will be to continue the fine work of my predecessor, Sarah Merrill, Joseph Harrington, Associate Principal, and the West Rutland School Staff.  The uniqueness of a Kindergarten through Grade 12 school is both challenging and rewarding. It is challenging in providing diversity of instructional support to a broad grade level configuration and it is rewarding in that significant opportunities for sustained student social and emotional growth exists within such a broad instructional framework in conjunction with an enriching academic environment.  Learning is a life-long venture, the process of which is enhanced by sharing that experience with friends and family within a support system designed to protect and enhance that experience. That academic support, protection and enhancement is the essence of the West Rutland School. And it is my intention to build on this success.

As the school year progresses, the Quarry Valley Board of School Directors, Dr. Taylor, our Superintendent of Schools and supervisory union staff members will gather to deliberate and focus attention on the search for the next Principal (2019-20) of the West Rutland School.  That vision will form the basis of this search. There will be opportunities for community stakeholders to participate in this process. This is your school and the future for your children. Your input and/or participation is critical in this process.

Meanwhile I am confident that my leadership experience and commitment will serve our school and community well. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding procedures, practices or policy as they relate to our school, please feel free to contact me.  It would be my pleasure to discuss them with you. Here’s to a great school and a great school year!
