Principal's Message

Welcome to Diboll High School!

Dear Lumberjack Family,

Working collaboratively with staff, students, parents, and community partnerships, we are implementing effective strategies at Diboll High School that will create a safe and effective learning environment that promotes academic achievement and personal growth.

Central to our efforts is the emphasis on rigor, relevance, and relationships. Relevance and relationships are the vehicles that get us to the destination of rigor. What happens in our classroom has to be understood and linked to the dreams and career aspirations of our students. It is my expectation that all teachers will engage students in rigorous and relevant classroom instruction that will help them be successful on state assessments and future academic challenges.

We can only achieve relevance that is meaningful to our students if we know each student individually. This requires genuine relationships-both between teacher and student and among groups of teachers working together. By fostering a professional learning community, we will work together to build relationships that will motivate our students to learn at the highest level, and empower our parents and community to ensure continuous student academic growth and life-long skills development.

Remember that parents, school personnel and students are equal partners in providing the best educational experience. We welcome your participation and support during the school year and encourage your membership in the Parent/Teacher/Student Association (PTSA) and campus improvement committees. By working together, we will be able to make great strides toward our campus goals. We look forward to a cherished relationship with all of the students and parents as we tackle the job of educating the youth of Diboll

Educationally yours,

Andy Trekell
