Huntingdon Special School District Director of Schools

Welcome to the Huntingdon Special School District. We hope you find our website informative and beneficial as you seek information about our school system. The Huntingdon School System has approximately 1600 students in grades PreK-12th grade. Along with our amazing students, our staff includes professional educators that are committed to preparing our students for success.   

For the benefit of our students and the future of the Huntingdon community, we strive to be unique. We want our students to receive an education that will allow them to be competitive wherever their journey takes them. Whether it's learning to be a proficient reader or preparing for post-secondary opportunities, we want our students to stand out due to our high expectations and the relentless support we provide for them. We want to assure our community is engaged in our public schools, our teachers and leaders are receiving the necessary supports, and our students are being prepared to be successful. We feel these three focuses are necessary to have a thriving school system where all stakeholders are part of an unconditional culture that embraces others success. 

Thank you for visiting our website. Please contact me if I can be of any help. Go Mustangs and Fillies!
