Principal's Message

Greetings Maywood Academy Family,

As the principal at Maywood Academy High School, I look forward to working with every student, parent, community member, and staff member as we strive towards the common goal of continuing to raise student achievement.

Our goal is for every student to not only graduate from high school, but to graduate from college, and everything we do at the school is grounded in making sure we achieve that important goal!

I am fully invested in the school’s mission and vision and thus will have a laser-like focus on preparing students for success in college and beyond through strong core academic instruction, as well as the development of critical thinking and effective communication skills.

As principal, my first priority is getting to know the entire community including students, families, and community members.  My job is to listen to your needs and to work with you to ensure every student is successful at Maywood Academy.  I encourage you to provide me with feedback on what the school is already doing well, and where we can improve.  I also encourage all families to take advantage of our workshops in the parent and family center, participate on school leadership and advisory committees, and attend exciting events such as Back to School Night, Parent Conferences, and Open House!

If you have questions, concerns, or suggestions for how we can continue to improve as a school, don’t hesitate to let me know by calling: 323.838.6000. I look forward to working with each of you and ensuring that every student is college and career ready!


Daniel Gettinger, Principal
