Welcome to Paideia High School! 

I am excited to serve as your principal this school year.  The Paideia High School staff dedicate their knowledge and experience to helping all students reach their highest potential and I am proud of the work that they do.

Paideia High School is an innovative program that began in 2010.  Our staff encourage and guide students to be actively engaged in their learning through a liberal arts focused curriculum.  We have small class sizes which help us attune to and support the needs of every individual.  Our student body includes teens from several neighboring school districts including Colville, Chewelah, Loon Lake, Mary Walker, Mead and Nine Mile Falls, creating a vibrant blend of ideas and pursuits.

Paideia High School offers students the opportunity to participate in various activities throughout the school year including student leadership, archery, chess club, and game club.  Students interested in participating in athletics have the opportunity to join teams in their resident district.  Our students participate in athletics at Jenkins High School or Mary Walker High School throughout the year.

As an educator, I always strive to do what is best for all students.  If you have any questions or concerns about your student or our program, please do not hesitate to contact me at (509)-937-2674 or email at  I look forward to an awesome year with our students and staff!
