Principal's Message

  • Dear Jane Frederick High School Students and Families,


    It is with great pride and excitement that I write you this letter introducing myself as your new Principal at Jane Frederick  High School. I have been an administrator with Stockton Unified School District for the last 5 years at Cesar Chavez High School and was currently the Interim Principal there. Additionally, I have multiple years of educational experience with alternative education high school for San Joaquin County Office of Education as an instructor and technology coach. My main goal as Principal, is to make sure that all of our students at Jane Frederick have the support that they need to be successful academically, socially, and emotionally, and become fully prepared citizens who have a positive impact on our community when they graduate. 

    This year, we will focus on refining our instructional practices with an emphasis on equity, mastery of standards, trauma-informed instruction, and social-emotional learning.  We anticipate a great year in which we will further increase our graduation rates and empower our students to become leaders  that make a positive impact in our community.  

    Please pay close attention to our Student Handbook located on our school website.  This handbook will outline our school and district’s academic, discipline, and behavior policies.  All of the information in this handbook will assist and ensure that the new school year progresses smoothly so that every student has the opportunity to achieve their highest level.  

    We are very fortunate to have such a caring staff that offer quality education, guidance, and mentorship to our Jane Frederick students. Our staff truly sets Jane Frederick apart from the rest. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions, concerns, or suggestions. I want your voices to be heard to provide the best support and education for our students. 

    On behalf of Jane Frederick High School staff, I want to welcome you back to school and look forward to seeing you on campus.  


    Thank you,

    Ryan Hesse

    Jane Frederick High School Principal
