Principal’s Corner

Having attended Amador High School myself, I am extremely grateful to not only be a part of the staff but to lead the school as Principal. Amador is a very special school with a strong history of promoting academic excellence and cultivating students of character who care deeply for our community. Although our students take diverse academic paths, there is a common sentiment about what it means to be a Buffalo. It isn’t a temporary affiliation for students’ high school years; it is a way of life, an identity that extends from one generation to the next. For many students, Amador High is the place where they begin to see how their talents and passions can be channeled into something concrete in the future. As students walk through the campus, albeit a little too slowly during passing periods, they catch the first glimpses of their destinies. Not all at once, of course, but through a series of opportunities and experiences and successes and challenges.

It is this remarkable quality that truly defines our school. Amador is an impressively beautiful campus with all the charm Sutter Creek has to offer. In addition, our teachers and counselors work diligently to provide students with academic opportunities that rival that of large schools. Our students are talented musicians, artists, athletes, actors, scholars, and agriculturalists. They demonstrate leadership and strong work ethic, patience, and good humor. All of these accomplishments, however, are more significant within the context of what Amador is really about. To many, Amador is where real life finally begins; it is the training ground to prepare our students for all that is to come. I hope you have enjoyed seeing a window into the world of Amador High. I know I never tire of the view myself.

The school site council (SSC) is a group of teachers, parents, classified employees, and students that works with the principal to develop, review and evaluate school improvement programs and school budgets. SSCs are mandated under California Education Code §52852 and require each school to:

  • Measure the effectiveness of improvement strategies at the school.
  • Seek input from school advisory committees.
  • Reaffirm or revise school goals.
  • Revise improvement strategies and expenditures.
  • Recommend the approved single plan for student achievement (SPSA) to the governing board.
  • Monitor implementation of the SPSA.

2021-2022 Meetings

Dates and times for School Site Council Meetings will be posted soon. Please check back.


SSC is constituted to have equal numbers of school-related members (principal, classroom teachers, and other school personnel) and parents or other community members.  Parents or community members on the SSC are selected by parents and pupils and may not be employed by the school district.

We invite parents, community members, staff and students to participate in the SSC.

If you would like to join our SSC, contact us.
