Mr. Derek A. Kinder

Welcome to Romeoville High School, "Home of the Spartans!"

On behalf of the staff of Romeoville High School, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all parents and students. We have many great things in store for your student as he or she begins/continues his or her high school career. Our goal for our students is that they reach their full potential and leave Romeoville High School career/college ready.

Our teachers are student-centered, caring instructors who make the school an enjoyable place for students to learn and grow. The staff sets high expectations for all students and provides dynamic lessons to help them reach their full potential. These compassionate professionals will work collaboratively to provide a productive, positive learning environment that is based on a belief that all students can learn and succeed when presented with a safe and student-friendly learning environment.

Our level of success will be determined by the partnership of all of us-parents, teachers/coaches, and students-working together as a team. Our top priorities are safety and academic success for your child. We will keep you informed throughout the year. Additionally, you may sign up on Infinite Campus so that you can view grades and assignments for your student at any time. We truly believe that an involved parent/guardian is one of the most important aspects of the school year. Please come in and get involved!

As each student begins/continues his/her years in high school, we know that it can be challenging. Therefore, we hope to work with you to help ease this journey. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call the school. The administrative team, counselors, deans, coaches/sponsors, and instructors are here to help you with anything you might need. Please feel free to contact us at anytime.

Throughout the learning process, we believe that it is our job to prepare our students for success (college or career ready) by the time they graduate from Romeoville High School. We will be successful as long as we keep the belief that all students can learn at college or career readiness levels when presented with dynamic differentiated engaging instruction, coupled with a valid and reliable assessment system that provides student friendly appropriate, descriptive feedback in a timely fashion. The students and community should hold us accountable for these expectations as we will hold each other accountable for them as well.

Thank you for entrusting your student to us. We are looking forward to a wonderful school year together!

Derek Kinder
