Principal Kelleyann Royce-Giron
As a graduate of PHS (class of 1990), I have returned home to lead the work in changing the narrative of PHS while supporting the staff, students and families in any way to learn, grow and succeed. This work is personal and I have every intention of showing the county, the state and the world how amazing Poughkeepsie is based on individuals who have so much to offer. We are talented, brilliant, strong and resilient...we are united by Pioneer Pride. Once a Pioneer, Always a Pioneer!
I bring 20 years of experience in education with me to PHS. I worked at Poughkeepsie Middle School, was a counselor wth the New York City Department of Education and became a special education teacher before moving into an administrative role in September 2016. I came here from New Venture STEAM Academy in the Bronx where I served as principal since September 2018.
