    Welcome to Soldan International Studies High school-a wonderful place that embraces diversity among our staff and scholars!

    It has been such a great experience for me to be the vice principal since 2013-2014 school year. It is a pleasure working with a dedicated and highly qualified staff to provide not only a quality education but also a fun, engaging, safe, and nurturing environment to our special diverse group of Tiger scholars! My personal mission is to lead with compassion to achieve our common vision of providing all our scholars quality education to prepare them for life after high school.
