Principal's Message
Dear Bridgeprep Academy of Hollywood Hills Families,

It is with great esteem that I introduce myself, Ronald Marcelo, as the new principal of BridgePrep Academy of Hollywood Hills. I find this opportunity to lead such a prestigious school as both an honor and a calling, especially since it involves our most valuable asset, our children. Over the past 22 years I have been a teacher, district supervisor, and school administrator. These roles have been most fulfilling when given the chance to work closely with students and experience their successes along with them. As your school principal, I plan on getting to know each of your children, provide them the highest quality of education, and provide any needed additional support that will yield positive student achievement. I will encourage and challenge your child to reach beyond so that they can open the door to new and exciting knowledge.

Not only do I look forward to working with your child, I also look forward to working with you on their educational journey. Together we will work to provide them with the best possible educational experience that will prepare them for the 21st century. I am excited to showcase the many great things that will be happening at BridgePrep Academy of Hollywood Hills. I also will be there for any support you may need in understanding any aspect of your child's education.

As a lifelong educator, I have always believed that EVERY child can learn. This has been my belief before I had my first class as a 21 year old middle school teacher. Since then I have been given the opportunity to work with many facets of education. I have worked with the Florida Department of Education in developing and ensuring the validity of both the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) and the Florida Standards Assessments (FSA). As a district supervisor for middle school mathematics, I have led many low-performing middle schools in improving student achievement through improved instruction. This work helped the school district acquire national recognition in their receipt of The Broad Prize. Lastly, as a school-site administrator I have led schools in improving student achievement through job-embedded development and effective use of performance data to guide instruction. Please know that I will work tirelessly and apply all these skills that I have acquired to ensure the best education for your child at BridgePrep Academy of Hollywood Hills.

Again, it is a pleasure to serve you and your children. Please trust that it will be my goal to provide the best possible opportunities for your children to be successful, as well as ensure we properly develop them in their educational journey. I will be working during this summer to make sure we have a successful opening of school and welcome you to stop by and say hello at any time. Please make sure to stay connected with us throughout the summer because there will be events where we could begin to talk and plan your children's future.
