Welcome to Mather High School

To the Freshman Class of 2024,

Congratulations on your acceptance to Mather High School as the newest class of proud
Rangers! Whether you are matriculating to Mather from one of our neighborhood schools or are
new to our community, I welcome you enthusiastically. In choosing Mather as your high school,
you have made an important step in your journey towards academic excellence. As a Mather
Ranger, you will receive a world-class education in a college preparatory environment targeted to
your readiness for success in post-secondary studies and career.

I am already proud of you! You successfully concluded your elementary school career during
2020 – a year for the record books, no doubt! But we made it, and we will be stronger for it. I know
there are still questions about next year, rest assured that as a Ranger you are joining a family
that takes care of one another.

Keep a lookout for upcoming email communications. This is the first of many communications
set to come your way. We will begin convening this summer, and whether it be through google
meet or, hopefully, in person – I expect you to participate and look forward to seeing you. Most
importantly you will have a chance to get to know your new teachers and members of the Class
of 2024. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to schedule your classes. It is an exciting time
and we expect you to play an active part in your transition to Mather. But don’t sweat it, your new
Mather family is here to support you!

Peter Auffant, Principal
Mather High School
