Letter from the Principal Learner


Dear Mandela School Families,

Over the last four years, I have watched the development of the Mandela International School with great anticipation as Tony Gerlicz and Santa Fe Public Schools worked diligently to establish the first public International Baccalaureate program in Santa Fe. As a former IB student, I am a strong believer in the strength of this curriculum and am delighted by the potential opportunity that this program offers to the students of Santa Fe.
It is an honor and a privilege to join the faculty of Mandela as the school’s next principal. I am committed to Mandela’s mission and core values and am confident that by working together we can ensure that the school reaches its full potential - a diverse and inspirational institution that encourages and enables young people to achieve their educational goals and dreams.

In the coming weeks, I look forward to getting to know the Mandela community – students, faculty, and families. Although my first few weeks on campus will undoubtedly be busy, my door will be open – I welcome you to stop by my office or to reach out by phone or email to share your thoughts or to simply introduce
