Principal's Message

currywCurry Werkheiser

Welcome to the Robert D. Stethem Educational Center website! As I begin my first year as principal at Stethem, I am committed to ensuring that our staff makes a positive difference in students’ lives.  We will continue to set high academic expectations for students and provide the support systems to make sure that they are met.  We are pleased to offer many alternatives for students including five Career and Technology Education (CTE) programs, a Virtual Academy, an Adult Independence Program (A.I.P.) as well as both middle and high school Opt-In programs.  It is our goal that all students will be college and career ready as they complete their coursework. The staff at Robert D. Stethem Educational Center is highly invested in our programs.  Our teachers work tirelessly to ensure student success and, above all, enjoy working with kids to meet them where they are and take them where they need to be.

I am looking forward to working with parents and students for an academically successful school year.
