Principal's Message

Mr. Sean O'Donnell
High School Principal

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  I am honored to return for my seventh year as the proud principal of Pagosa Springs High School.  I am excited for another successful year partnering with staff and community to ensure our students have an exceptional educational experience.


Our mission at Pagosa Springs High School is to prepare for success by continuously improving.  We are also committed to ensuring every PSHS graduate has a plan for the next step in his or her lives. 


After a year of preparation, Pagosa Springs High School will be offering a wide range of AP classes.  This allows students to choose nationally recognized rigorous courses, and expands students’ opportunity to earn college credit while in high school.  Along with AP, we have added a college prep class to help interested students prepare for the college experience.


We have also expanded our current career and technical education offerings.  This year, building on the success of the last two year’s expansion of building trades, woodworking, and interior design classes, we are excited to be offering entry level classes for students interested in the medical industry.  We are still committed to continuing to find more opportunities for future expansion on these programs to meet the needs of our students wanting to enter directly into the workforce.


I feel privileged to lead such an outstanding school community which strives to provide programs that supports both students’ academic, and social emotional growth.  We also believe successful students involve themselves in extracurricular programs.  We offer outstanding visual and performing arts programs along with sports programs, and a host of club opportunities that offer something for everyone.


I look forward to partnering with you throughout this school year to help your student become successful and work towards determining a plan for their next step after graduation.
