Dear Students, Staff, Families, Community, and Alumni of Chowchilla Union High School,


My name is Ryan Stockton, and I am excited and honored to have the opportunity to join this extraordinary school community. To serve as principal of Chowchilla Union High School is to assume the responsibility of upholding the exemplary qualities that define this wonderful school and a calling to build on a school culture that nurtures and prepares our young people to pave their way and shape their future. It is a great responsibility that again I am grateful to have and fulfill.


Our school's mission “to promote a school-wide culture of higher education, life-long learning, professional behavior, effort, and individual accountability." resonates deeply with me. It is my aspiration to see our young people serve as scholars engaged in spirited interactions that broadens their perspectives and prepares them for their future goals. Our students can explore their interests in a variety of ways to fit their interests through clubs and activities, participate in athletics, cultivate their artistic talents, and stimulate their intellect among peers. My goal is that every student has the outlet and confidence to excel in whatever they pursue and are able to take full advantage of the opportunities Chowchilla Union offers by surrounding them with caring adults who foster the conditions for excellence.


Like many of you, I am a parent who wants my children to have educational experiences that help them develop into independent thinkers, caring individuals, and self-sufficient adults. Like many of you, I believe that all people can learn and continue to grow. Like many of you, I am an educator who believes in the power of teaching and learning and that those impacts will set the tone for a fulfilling, purposeful life. Our commonalities will bind us together as we work to meet Chowchilla Union’s mission.


In closing, I give you my word to be fully committed and active in our collective effort, to work continuously to achieve our common goals, and to consistently demonstrate the intent needed to achieve what we believe is best for our young people at Chowchilla Union. I look forward to partnering with each of you as we strive for excellence.


Roll Tribe!

Dear Students, Parents/Guardians, Teachers, Staff, and Community,

It is with great pleasure and excitement to be a part of the Chowchilla Tribe! I am honored to accept the new role as Assistant Principal. I want to welcome all of you for the 2020-2021 school year. I am eager to meet and work with each one of you. 

I have been in education for over 20 years. I have taught and worked with students in grades K-12. My experience includes teaching in the classroom working with diverse and special populations, such as court and community schools, special education, and English Language Learners. I have spent the last five years counseling students while learning to become an administrator. I am fortunate to expand my role with CUHSD.  

My educational philosophy and focus are on the whole child. A whole child is curious, creative, caring, empathetic, and confident. I believe in building strong relationships and encouraging students to grow in every area of learning. By providing safe, healthy, creative, engaging, and challenging teaching strategies, students will have the best learning outcomes. My fundamental belief is that ALL students can learn. I also believe that with a positive attitude, a growth mindset, and good character, challenges can be overcome. I strive to instill these qualities in students as well as model the expectations to serve as a positive role model. 

The high school years are important and critical times for students. Teachers, staff, and administration are here to prepare students for their adult journey. At Chowchilla High, we set expectations and strive to help students reach their maximum potential. Each student is unique and comes with their own goals and expectations, and our mission is to help them meet and exceed those expectations. Teachers, staff, and administration set Expected Schoolwide Learning Results (ESLR’s) through the implementation of TRIBE PRIDE:

1). Technology User - Who become technologically literate and acquire vocational skills. 

2). Responsible Citizen - Who behave in a proactive, ethical, respectful, and patriotic manner.

3). Independent Learners - Who set dynamic goals to answer their challenges of tomorrow.

4). Broadminded Thinkers - Who critically identify and solve problems to create and support intellectual work.

5). Effective Communicators - Who speak, listen, read, and write proficiently.

At Chowchilla High, we believe these essential skills will prepare our students for the 21st Century and will be ready to become productive, caring, and successful citizens who will make the world a better place. 

In order for your child to receive an optimal learning experience and enriching and challenging academic instruction, my goal as Assistant Principal is to provide leadership that will facilitate and promote a school environment that is welcoming, fun, safe, and respectable. 

I am confident that our school will continue to be a place where our students can grow academically and socially. I am looking forward to the possibilities that this school year will bring and extremely proud to be part of CUHSD. GO TRIBE!
