Welcome to 2016-17 School Year


I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you back to another school year. I am excited, as I enter my fourth year as one of the Assistant Principals of Ridgeland-Hardeeville High School, seventh year as a school administrator and eighteenth year in the education arena. I always look forward to a refreshing school year as it is filled with infinite potential and countless possibilities.

My experiences allow me to help develop respectful, responsible, learners.  I believe all students can be successful, and this belief drives the work I do on a daily basis.  Students will learn to exceed expectations through a strong work ethic, high standards, and receiving a quality education in an orderly environment.  We will challenge our students to become lifelong learners and productive members of society.  Our staff is a dedicated group of professionals that work hard every day to support student growth academically, socially, and emotionally.  

It is important to be connected to the school through positive relationships, a sense of community, and participation in extracurricular opportunities. Parent involvement is vital to your children’s success, and we ask that you continue to play an active role in their education.

I look forward to connecting with you to make this a successful year for our children.  Thank you in advance for your support and commitment.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Educationally Yours,

L.R. Dinkins Ed. D
Assistant Principal, Ridgeland-Hardeeville High School
