Red Hook High School

Welcome to Our Teaching and Learning Community


  • At the Red Hook High School, we believe all students should be engaged in an academically challenging program. We maintain a successful AP and IB program focused on accessibility for all students. 


    Welcome New RHHS Principal Rob McKiernan

    photo of Rob McKiernan Rob McKiernan, the new principal at Red Hook High School, brings years of teaching and administrative experience to the district.

    “I have been aware as an educator in the Hudson Valley and as a Dutchess County resident of Red Hook's strong reputation,” said Mr. McKiernan. “What I did not know and what makes me like Red Hook even more is that the district from top to bottom is committed to educational excellence, but is simultaneously looking for ways to improve opportunities for students in the career and technical education fields.”

    “One of my goals is to implement a learning program designed to emphasize issues of equity and the social-emotional well-being of students”, he added. “There is more to school than ABCs and the Red Hook School District understands that.”

    Before joining the Red Hook team, he served as principal of Goshen High School. Mr. McKiernan has more than 15 years of experience as a social studies teacher, dean of students and assistant principal in the Carmel Central School District.

    “I’m looking forward to getting to know the students and staff, and working with them on making Red Hook High School an even better place than it already is,” he said.

  • Focus on Advisory Periods

    The administration at Linden Avenue Middle and Red Hook High School recently created monthly advisory periods to focus on many of the pressing social emotional needs of students. These advisory periods are meant to provide space for students and their teachers to discuss important issues. Recent topics include the harmful effects of rumors, the importance of gratitude, and understanding that perceptions of other people are often misleading. Unfortunately, schools face no shortage of topics fed by societal trends. The underlying belief is that dialoguing with students helps to create a better sense of school community, more empathy, a deeper relationship with the teacher, and a school culture more conducive to learning.
