Most recently an Assistant Principal at Orange Glen High School for the past four years, Ms. Adame has also worked closely with the Educational Services department as a District Facilitator of Professional Development, providing teachers with ongoing training in the Essential Elements of Instruction.   A graduate of San Diego State and Point Loma University, Ms. Adame brings years of classroom experience as an English and social science teacher while at Keiller Leadership Academy in San Diego.

Stacey will officially begin this position in line with the new school year, starting on July 1, 2016. She will be following the leadership provided by Tom Allison, the former Orange Glen High School Principal, who accepted a position at the Escondido Union High School District Office. Ms. Adame states, “It has been my privilege to serve the Orange Glen High School community and I am honored to be given the opportunity to lead our school in this new capacity.  I look forward to tackling the challenges we will face together as a team, creating a culture where all of our students can and will succeed.”

The “Patriot Pride” that comes from Orange Glen High School (OGHS), nestled near the foothills in the heart of Escondido, is resounding and hard to miss. For over 50 years, OGHS has served as the place where many community-based activities are held and is truly a “home away from home” for each student who chooses it as their place of study. Here, students receive the academic and personal assistance to help make their dreams come true. Teachers, staff, and administrators are recognized for creating a family environment on campus and ensuring each student, especially the underrepresented, is well prepared for a bright future. Orange Glen High School excels at offering a wide variety of opportunities for students to expand their knowledge and get involved on campus and in the community. Outstanding opportunities at OGHS include leadership development, vast extracurricular activities, NJROTC, and strong College, Career & Technical Education (CCTE) programs.

Steve Boyle, EUHSD Superintendent welcomed the decision by the Board stating, “I am confident Stacey Adame will provide excellent leadership to the approximately 2000 students and staff at Orange Glen. Her bilingual/bicultural background, familiarity with the Orange Glen staff and community, as well as commitment and experience, provide what is necessary to continue to enhance the high school educational process.”
