The Heinz Simonitsch School (HSS) has been committed to developing young minds to becoming lifelong learners since school year 2000/2001. We pride ourselves on five core values as we consistently exceed the expectations of all our stakeholders. I am humbled to be in an institution with dedicated, innovative and caring team members to include the board, Head of Schools, teachers, parents/guardians and students. This will only trigger our mantra to make each day filled with new experiences, learning for all and endless possibilities of making someone’s life better.
In my capacity as Deputy Head of Schools, my personal vision for HSS is to support the Head of Schools’ mandate of continuous improvements of the school’s environment. This will positively impact all stakeholders and all who enter our gates will feel safe, comfortable and fully engaged while realizing their maximum potential. This is only possible with the unwavering support from all parents/guardians, students and other critical stakeholders, coupled with effective communication, training and development. We will continue to engage in best practices in recruiting the highest quality teachers to unearth the diamonds in our classrooms in changing Average to Amazing.
Recognizing fully the importance of parents and guardians in the wholesome development of each child, we crave your full support and participation in instilling key values, to include but not limited to:
- Self-discipline at home and school
- Dedication and commitment to their work
- Respect for everyone and everything
- Team Work
We believe The Heinz Simonitsch School must become a venerated and esteemed name across Jamaica and by extension the entire world. Albert Einstein once said, “Education is not about learning of facts, but training of the mind to think”. HSS has the right formula for training all minds, and we fervently believe that we are the best at it.
As a member of this family, I also crave your feedback which is extremely valuable to us as we grow into being the best lifelong learners and teachers. Please share your ideas, as we work towards address your concerns and celebrate our successes together.
Let us all work together to mould the next generation of leaders of the world by changing Average into Amazing.
I welcome you to The Heinz Simonitsch School family!!
Mr. Kadeem Gray
