Principal’s Message


ear Golden Eagle Family, As principal of Naples High School, it is a pleasure to welcome everyone back for another great year.We are anxiously awaiting the return of our students to campus as they bring with them an energy and enthusiasm for learning. I would also like to extend an extra warm welcome to our newest Golden Eagles, all of the incoming Grade 9 students and their families. Our goal is to make every child feel welcomed, connected, and a part of our school community. We know that the foundation for being college and career ready by the end of four years with us starts with the positive, constructive relationships we develop with each other. While most of our learning community takes the summer months to relax before refocusing, we having been working to improve our campus. Some enhancements are clear as you approach our campus such as new security fencing installed on the north side of campus. Student safety is our top priority and our new fencing is another measure in place to help students focus on learning.This new fencing provides access to our campus before and after school, but also secures our campus during the school day. Students will still be able to enter campus from the north side through an electronic gate near the gym locker room doors. Students will be trained on the new process during the first few days of the school year. Naples High School, like all other Collier County Public Schools, will be going to a single entry point on the south side of campus in Building One.All students, parents, and visitors to our campus will be directed to the Guidance and Student Relations entrance where they will have to show identification prior to entering the facility. We realize that these extra steps may be inconvenient at times, but we are focused on making sure our school is safe.

We have also made changes to improve the function and beauty of our campus. We have added a new student computer lab, upgraded our television studio, and created a new business classroom. In addition, we have reassigned classrooms by department so that teachers can more easily work together to create lessons which both engage and challenge students. Finally, we have added new signage and landscaping to make our campus even more welcoming.

A Message from Assistant Principal of Curriculum and Instruction

Hello Naples High School! My name is Joe Manento, and I am extremely proud to be part of the Naples Golden Eagles family as the new Assistant Principal of Curriculum & Instruction. Originally from Easton, PA, I graduated with a B.S. in Political Science/Secondary Education in 1989, from Shippensburg University. I relocated to Florida in 1996. While working hard to establish myself in the Naples area, I was hired at Gulf Coast High School in 1998, where I taught a variety of Social Studies courses. I then began my graduate studies in Educational Leadership and earned my Master’s Degree in 2009. Continuing with my personal vison of “life-long learning,” I decided it was time for a new challenge; so in 2013 I accepted the position of Testing Coordinator at Lely High School. A one year experience under an exceptional administration at LHS led me to become part of another dynamic administrative team as the Assistant Principal of Attendance & Discipline at Oakridge Middle School. I spent the last four years learning and tackling new challenges at the middle school level. This road has led me to my next adventure as the new APC of the Naples High School Golden Eagles! Knowing that Naples High School thrives on student achievement through academics and extracurricular activities, I am ready to work with parents, students, colleagues, staff, and the community to continue to help Naples High School achieve its goals. Together we will support each other and ensure Naples High School remains on the path of excellence!
