Mr. Damein Phoenix
As an Assistant Principal of East Orange Campus High School, I will work tirelessly to guide our students toward success. Although success is a relative term, I firmly believe that it is based on one’s ability to recognize their choices, rather than their inability to conquer the circumstances that they face.
As a servant of our school community, I will model for students, faculty, and all who hold a stake in the progress of our students, the qualities that I believe can ultimately lead to true success. These qualities include, but are not limited to, integrity, honesty, and humility. I will work collaboratively with members of the school community to help ensure that our students receive a quality education. I plan to challenge educators to strive for their best as it pertains to teaching and reaching our students. I will urge them to consider their current philosophy regarding education and our students, and ask them to continue to raise the level of expectation. I plan to encourage everyone to be vested participants and maintain or strengthen the love for our school, community, and students.
Through collaboration with my fellow administrative team members, I will use the four R’s: Relevance, Rigor, and Relationships, to attain Results.
I am a product of this district, and as such, I know that we are capable of achieving greatness. With the help of all who are invested in student success, it is my goal to empower and guide our students to the realization of the great legacy that has been left on their behalf.
