As the new interim principal of Jane Frederick Alternative High School I would like to introduce myself. I am Suzanne Spracher-Anderson and come to the staff, students, families, and the surrounding community with 30 years of teaching and administrative experience within the Stockton Unified School district. I am excited to begin this new leg of my career journey with a group of students whom I know have the capacity to do great things and to reach their full potential. As a native Stocktonian with deep roots in our community, I feel passionate about preparing our students to become involved in the city in which they live and may one day decide to work.
The vision of Jane Frederick High School is to provide an enriched academic program that reflects high expectations for all students in a positive learning environment. Programs focus on mastery of the standards through the rigorous, challenging, and evolving curriculum. Administration, teachers, and support staff are here to inspire students to become self-directed, goal-oriented, creative problem solvers, and life-long learners. Students will continue to be encouraged and guided to become college, career, and community ready.
The Jane Frederick staff is committed to moving all students toward fulfilling their full potential and doing so with the partnership and guidance of parents and community members. We are focused on helping our students learn in an atmosphere that is safe, and on being responsible and respectful citizens in a trusting environment.
As we learn about each individual student and their goals and dreams, we will work diligently to ensure that they are pointed in the right direction whether they move toward college or decide to join the workforce upon graduation. I will work feverishly and focused on ensuring that the Jane Frederick teachers and support staff continue their good work in providing all of our students the highest quality academic experience.
I look forward to a year of partnership and progress with the Jane Frederick students, staff, and families as we make sure that every student becomes college, career, and community ready.
