Ryan Fitzgerald, Principal

  Welcome to Hale Community School! I am humbled to lead a wonderful group of educators and work with such an incredible community. Education is very important to me. I have a Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. I earned a Masters degree in School Guidance and Counseling from the University of Wisconsin-Stout, and an EdD in Educational Administration from Bethel University.

Hale Community School is focused on academic excellence for all students. We believe education provides opportunity. We are committed to giving our students every opportunity to succeed. We believe that students must be challenged with rigorous coursework, critical thinking opportunities, and a willingness for all of our educators to connect the curriculum to meaningful learning experiences for everyone. We have an amazing population of parents who are committed to their community school and have an enormous influence on Hale’s success. In addition, you will find strong programs in Art, Music, Physical Education, and Media/Technology.

As the principal, I am here to ensure that we continue to grow ALL students academically, socially, and emotionally. In addition, I am here to support teachers, students, and families. TOGETHER we will continue to achieve greatness at Hale Community School.
