Dear Black Knight Community,
It is with great pride that I write this letter of introduction as the Assistant Principal and Athletic Director of Newbury Jr./Sr. High School. I started my career at Newbury Jr./Sr. High School in January 2015. I have seventeen years of educational experience spanning grades PK- 12 with specific concentrations in social studies, library-media/technology and alternative education. I began my career in education as a Learning Disability Tutor at Jefferson Jr./Sr. High School in Ashtabula County, Ohio. From 2002-2014, I taught social studies at North Coast Academy, an alternative high school operated by the Educational Service Center of Cuyahoga County. Those years shaped my educational belief that all students can succeed when provided with a caring and dedicated support system of teachers, parents/guardians, administration, school support staff, and community members. It is evident, from my time at Newbury, that the entire Black Knight Community shares this same belief.
For the upcoming school year, we will continue to emphasize “The Right Way, The Black Knight Way”! My door will always be open and I welcome your involvement. I am eager to work with you as a partner to ensure your child’s success during this important time in his or her educational journey.
All the best,
Anthony R. Forfia
