Principal Steve Lucas

Hello Cavalier family and welcome to another great school year! I hope this message finds you well and you are as excited about the coming year as am I and the dedicated staff here at Calvert High School. Speaking of our fantastic staff, we had a number of them earn prestigious awards last year which I would like to share with you.

CHS Teacher of the Year — Mr. King
CHS Support Staff Team Member of the Year — Ms. Montgomery
Washington Post Teacher of the Year — Ms. Ratcliff
MD Council of Teachers of Mathematics Teacher of the Year — Ms. Reynolds
SMECO STEM Teacher of the Year — Mr. Pike
National Society of High School Scholars Educator of the Year — Ms. Lister
Calvert Collaborative for Children and Youth Healthy Children Award — Ms. Fregelette
SMAC Swim Coach of the Year — Mr. Dryer
SMAC Volleyball Coach of the Year — Mr. Smith
Finalist for the Maryland Librarian of the Year — Ms. Mignardi
Ms. Dryer was competitively selected for an all-expense paid trip to Hawaii to study the Korean War!!!

We have an amazing and talented group of educators here. Please congratulate them if you have the opportunity.

Speaking of awards, Calvert High School was awarded a Silver designation from US News and World Reports as one of the nation’s top high schools in 2018. CHS ranked 1,974 of the over 20,000 high schools evaluated by US News. Additionally, Calvert County Public Schools returned the highest PARCC English 10 results in the entire state of Maryland last year and the 3rd highest Algebra PARCC scores. Finally, over 95% of CHS students who took the Government HSA last year met their graduation requirement. These are fantastic results and a clear indication of the hard work and commitment of our entire community.

I mainly report these things to reinforce what a great school and a great community we have. Our students are graduating at an amazing rate and their college and career readiness is stronger each year. While we still have a lot of work to do, our progressive gains in achievement demonstrate the kind of commitment to future generations which can preserve the quality of life in Calvert County, our state, and our nation for years to come. I encourage you to get involved in this effort by joining the PTSA, volunteering here at school, or donating your time and your resources to our children. There is no more urgent matter in our community and I look forward to us doing it together. I invite you to visit often, and I wish you well.
