Dear Englewood Parents and Students,

As I begin my 25th year as a public school educator, my first in Englewood Schools, I am simply humbled and grateful at the same time to have the opportunity to serve as your principal on The Englewood Campus (TEC). All of my previous 24 years were spent serving the parents and students of Jefferson County with most of those taking place in the South Jeffco community at Ken Caryl Middle School, Columbine High School, Falcon Bluffs Middle School, and Mitchell Elementary School.  Creating a safe environment for every student and staff member is my number one priority.  We will take steps to make sure that everybody that walks into any of our three unique schools on this campus feels safe and secure.

We also want to work even harder this year to create a culture of excellence within our school community.  We want to challenge all students, teachers, staff members, parents, and community members to take pride in everything they do, rise to challenges, hold ourselves and each other to high expectations, and to engage in a rigorous educational experience.

We look forward to continuing the great traditions that have been established in Englewood Schools over the past 100+ years.  We need to continue to move forward creating 21st century learning environments for our students, infusing all of the latest technologies into everyday learning, and guaranteeing that every student is performing at grade level or above and seeking immediate interventions for those who are not.  We will continue to make sure that staff members are given ample opportunities in the area of professional development to stay on top of the latest and most effective trends in education.  Most importantly, you can be assured that everything that we continue to do at TEC will be focused on the best interests of your children.  Together, we look forward to working with you in an educational community that is dedicated to excellence.

On a personal level, I am happily married with four children of my own. We reside in Highlands Ranch and most of my free time (if there is such a thing) is spent coaching one of my kids sports teams or running them around from event to event.


Belong and Thrive!

Ryan West
