​Principal's Message
 
Dear Doherty High School Parents, Guardians and Community Members:
 
Welcome to the 2014-15 school year!
 
My name is Kevin Gardner. I am privileged to introduce myself to you as the new Principal of Doherty High School. As we prepare for the new school year, I want to share with you how honored I am to be given the responsibility of leading Doherty High School.
 
I am a Colorado native, beginning my 25th year in Public Education. I was born in Denver,  graduated from Grand Junction High School and attended Fort Lewis College in Durango Colorado and the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. I spent my teaching career in District Eleven, began my administrative career in Douglas County and most recently served as the Principal at Cedaredge High School on the Western Slope of Colorado. My wife Elizabeth and I have four children ages 24-15, that keep us on our toes and our lives in perspective.

As an educator, I am committed to student learning. My goal is to be a listener, a learner and a partner in bringing about success for our students, our school and our community. My job is to assist every student in the development of the skills required to be a contributing member of our school, community and our society. It is vital that every stakeholder in our school has a voice and that we all share in the responsibility of leading a school that meets the needs of every student and the demands of the 21st Century.
 
Again I want to say how excited I am to be joining the Doherty school community. I look forward to meeting each of you personally and getting the school year off to a great start.
 
Sincerely,

Kevin Gardner
Principal
Doherty High School
