Welcome to Ben Lomond High School! We hope our students and families have enjoyed their time away from school this summer and are ready to come back and take advantage of everything the great BEN LOMOND HIGH SCHOOL has to offer.
Teachers, counselors, secretaries, and supporting staff have also enjoyed some much needed rest, but have been very busy learning, attending conferences and workshops, reading and preparing so they can continue to provide our students with the greatest education and opportunities of any high school in the state.
As the new principal, I am excited to carry on with the outstanding traditions of BEN LOMOND HIGH SCHOOL, and I look forward to strengthening our students’ experiences while at BL. We will continue working toward our transition to Standards Based Grading. This a very powerful practice which creates an atmosphere that is 100% focused on student learning.
Before coming to BEN LOMOND, I enjoyed working at Mound Fort Middle School as a first year teacher. Opportunities then took me to the Davis School District where I enjoyed my time as a psychology teacher and coach at Clearfield High, an assistant principal at North Davis Jr. High, Woods Cross High, Northridge High, and then the principal of North Davis Jr. High. I’m confident these experiences will help enhance all of the great things we are doing at BEN LOMOND HIGH SCHOOL as we plan for the future.
It is my promise to all parents that their students are safe and learning while at school. When students leave BEN LOMOND HIGH SCHOOL, they will be college, career and community ready. In order to do this, I will (1) Articulate and communicate my vision for learning to the faculty and all stakeholders at BEN LOMOND. (2) Create a culture that has high expectations for both the faculty and students. (3) Provide the necessary professional development to support teachers. (4) Create a systematic approach that ensures learning for ALL students within the school. (5) Allocate and manage school funds and resources to support student learning and teachers’ collaborative efforts.
Ben Lomond High School, originally constructed in 1952, was named for the Ben Lomond Peak, so called by the Scottish settlers who were reminded of the Ben Lomond in Scotland, because it stands outs along the Wasatch Front.
The local cultural influence gave the school its theme, including bagpipers, Royal Stewart tartan and Scots. Students are known as "Friendly Fighting Scots."
Ben Lomond High School was rebuilt, other than the gymnasium, from the District's 2006 bond. Construction began in June 2007 and was fully complete in August 2010. Ben Lomond and the District were recognized for the renovations and were awarded the Mountain States Construction Silver Award for grades K-12 in 2010.
