West Hills STEM Academy

Reimagine School 2020

Dear Students and Families,

We are about to embark on a brand new journey in education during the 2020-2021 school year. I am very excited to work with you every step of the way as your new Principal at West Hills STEM Academy. I am fully committed to serving the community and my goal is to take our school to new heights. We are committed to ensuring that your children receive the best support system to learn and grow.

My vision for West Hills STEM Academy is to provide students with a safe, engaging, and motivating learning environment. We want to build lifelong learning habits that take students anywhere they dream of going in the future. At West Hills we are committed to providing both academic and social development. It takes families, teachers, support staff, community members and administrators to develop academic, social, and emotional qualities.

We are excited for the opportunity to work with you this year and provide a safe and productive learning environment. I encourage you to reach out with any ideas, concerns or questions you may have. We are excited about our new adventure in the virtual classroom and look forward to the day students return to our building.


Melissa Rohr, Principal
