Principal's Message

Our mission at Nathan Hale Ray High School is to inspire all students to engage in rigorous and relevant learning experiences to cultivate transferable skills for success in society. As a school, we will work collaboratively to ensure success and growth for all our students throughout their time at Hale Ray. We are a school community that not only values long-standing tradition, but innovative practices to help students EXPLORE, SEEK and BECOME self-directed, innovative and  independent learners who are willing to take responsible risks while showing empathy and compassion for others. Our dedicated faculty and staff are committed to developing strong connections with students to help them grow as individuals and prepare for future success in all aspects of society. 

Here at Hale Ray, we have a wide variety of rigorous academic offerings, and an extensive extracurricular program as well. These opportunities allow our students to explore their unique talents and interests as well as ensuring students to be academically prepared, find a passion and experience personal growth. We encourage our students to challenge themselves, set high goals and have a well-rounded experience at Hale Ray High School. Our outstanding teachers, staff and coaches are committed to supporting students’ individual interests. Students at Hale Ray achieve high levels academically, actively participate in extra-curricular activities, develop leadership skills and dedicate a significant number of hours to our community.

I encourage you to explore our website, which includes valuable resources such as the Program of Studies, the student handbook as well as information on school events. In addition, you will find faculty and staff contact information. At Hale Ray, we want every student to reach his or her highest level of ability.  A partnership with students, parents and community members is imperative for our students to achieve this goal.

Please do not hesitate to reach out with questions, concerns and celebrations!

We welcome you to Hale Ray! Hear the Noises!
