Principal's Corner

A message from the Principal

Dear Waltham High School Families,
Welcome to the 2021 - 2022 school year! I am thrilled to welcome you back to school. It is truly an honor for me to move from Associate Principal to Principal of Waltham High School. I am privileged to work with an outstanding staff to make it a smooth transition for our students during this uncertain time. I would also like to extend a warm welcome to our new teachers and Dr. Robert Lyons, our new Associate Principal. We are excited to work closely with you to ensure the success and well-being of all of our students.
 As a former WPS student, I truly believe that Waltham High School is such a special place to learn. We are a proudly diverse community. Our students are kind, compassionate, and inquisitive. Together with our dedicated staff, we strive to make connections with students to help them feel valued, accepted, and safe. 
At WHS we are committed to continuing our work to: 
Create a safe, inclusive, and supportive learning community 
Ensuring that all of our students have a positive school experience.
Relationship-building—acknowledging and validating students’ lived experiences and needs.
Provide equitable opportunities for all of our students 
Access to resources, giving students what they need 
Leveraging student's voice 
Create a deeper connection with families and the community 
Invite families to share priorities, concerns, and feedback
Bring families into the decision-making process
Provide rigorous, culturally sustaining curricula.
Culturally responsive and socially aware—recognizing and celebrating cultural identity.
All of us at Waltham High School are eager and excited to begin. This year is going to be amazing as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant. We want everyone who steps through our doors-teachers, students, and families to feel welcomed and excited to be here! As your Principal, it is important to me that attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment. My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year.  

Brenda Pena, Principal
