Welcome to Lisbon High School

Dear Lisbon High School Students, Parents, and Guardians,

 

Looking at year three as the Principal for Lisbon High School, I am enthusiastic to continue within this role.  This time of year can be an anxious time for both new and returning students, and it also offers a positive flow of energy throughout the building.  Each year that passes is an opportunity to reflect, learn and grow from previous experiences.  This reflection allows for creative and innovative changes/approaches to make the high school experience the best it can be for our students.  We will accomplish this by setting high expectations for our students and providing supportive systems to assure they are met.  Lisbon High School has a lot of great offerings, from clubs and activities, to sports and academically challenging curriculum.  It is important to become a part of the school community and get involved in extra-curricular opportunities.  I am excited for students and staff to return for a great school year! 

It continues to be our mission to support every student socially, emotionally, physically and mentally.  Our school community invites all students and staff to feel welcomed, safe, connected, and a part of our Lisbon High School family.   

 We will continue a solidified partnership with the Maine Department of Education - Count Me In program.  This program works to increase student attendance, engagement and academic achievement through data so all students have a successful educational experience.  Last year, we were able to identify trends and collect data.  With a continued shared partnership and parental involvement, we will embark on our mission to ensure our students are physically present and ready to learn.  We have enriching curriculum, engaging groups/activities, and remarkable staff to make your high school experience great.  Being present prepares students for their future and allows them to explore unlimited opportunities.     

Lisbon High School will continue to foster Restorative Practices this school year.  “Restorative Practices help build a positive climate and culture in school by promoting inclusiveness, relationship building and problem solving utilizing restorative processes.”  In year two, we will focus on student involvement within our school and the continuation of building relationships amongst each other (student to student, student to staff, staff to staff, and staff to parent/community).  Although policies and appropriate consequences for our actions will continue, we are hopeful to look through the restorative lens of each situation and support students in learning from these experiences to move forward positivity in life. 

We look forward to embracing the challenges of the future and continuing to celebrate and cherish the traditions of the past.  As we work together to support and prepare the students for future endeavors, please take advantage of my open door policy to keep the lines of communication open relative to collaboration, connection and/or to offer suggestions.  I welcome your input! Please feel free to stop in, call or email me at 207-353-3030 or smagee@lisbonschoolsme.org any time. 

  

Sincerely,

 

Susan E. Magee
Principal
Lisbon High School
