Principal’s Message

ronicka-briscoeDear Eisenhower Families,

As I begin my first school year as Principal of Dwight D. Eisenhower Academy of Global Studies, I am extremely excited and deeply committed to making a positive difference in the lives of your child. We will accomplish this by setting high academic expectations for all children and providing supportive systems to assure they are met. By addressing school culture, setting high standards for teacher performance, increased academic expectations for all students and engaging the Eisenhower families and community, it is our goal that all students achieve at high levels.

I am pleased to share some of the new and exciting things happening at Eisenhower. We have fully embraced our Global Studies mission and have invested in building improvements. We have adopted Common Core Aligned curriculum in both ELA and Math. These programs will challenge our students and force them to move beyond their comfort zone. We have recruited highly qualified and dedicated educators, many of whom are bi-lingual. We are offering Spanish as well as Art. We have updated our website with a nightly homework link. We have partnered with the Center for Restorative Approaches, which has helped us, shape our school culture plan. We believe by building authentic relationships, we will create the foundation for a safe and positive school culture. The focus is on positive behavior and adhering to the SOAR Principles of Excellence (Success, Opportunity, Acceptance and Respect).

I am motivated by your investment and commitment to the success of our school. With involved parents, committed students, and quality teachers, we will make Eisenhower the greatest school on Earth!

We hope your visit to our website will give you a quick snapshot of life at our school.  Please also like us on Facebook at
