Dear Desert Mountain High School Community,

I am very excited to share with you that Dr. Birdwell will recommend to the Governing Board Dr. Lisa Hirsch as principal of Desert Mountain High School beginning with the 2017-2018 school year. This recommendation will be presented at the April 25, 2017 Board meeting.

Dr. Hirsch’s background includes eighteen years of being an elementary, high school and college teacher which provides her with relatable qualities with the teaching staff. Her administrative experience includes being a district leader in K-12 curriculum for two years, an elementary and middle school principal for eight years, and is a current principal/educator at Sedona Charter School.

In addition, Dr. Hirsch has taught AP U.S. History and language arts, and middle school English as well as served six years as a high school TOA. She comes equipped with a broad school and community perspective, and the ability to facilitate and lead people and programs.

Dr. Hirsch earned her bachelor’s degree from Tufts University, her master’s degree from Columbia Teachers College, and her doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction from Northern Arizona University.

We are confident that Dr. Hirsch will be a dynamic leader for our students and teachers, and will be a great asset for the Desert Mountain High School community.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or Dr. Cecilia Johnson, Executive Director of School Leadership, at (480) 484-6889 or ceciliajohnson@susd.org.

Sincerely,

Pam Sitton

The Best High Schools rankings, available exclusively at usnews.com, feature data on a number of factors, including enrollment, student ethnicity, location, school type, and results of state assessments, Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate tests. New this year, U.S. News factored graduation rates into the Best High Schools methodology.

In addition to the national rankings, U.S. News has published rankings of the top schools in each state, as well as the Best STEM Schools, Best Charter Schools and Best Magnet Schools. The rankings are produced in conjunction with RTI International, a global research firm.
