INTRODUCING BARNABY PAYNE, NEW REDWOOD PRINCIPAL

Dear RHS Alumni:
    I am honored to introduce myself to the Redwood High School alumni as the new principal of the school.
    I am in my 29th year as an educator and 14th as a secondary principal. I’m also a San Francisco native and Marin County has been a place of many adventures and memorable experiences for me for my entire life. It feels serendipitous for me to cross the Golden Gate each to day to Redwood HS, in the shadow of Mt. Tam.
    My educational philosophy sees unlimited potential in all Redwood students and a desire to support them towards high achievement while holding them accountable to strive for the best possible version of themselves.
    I have already met many RHS alumni in our staff, on our athletic fields and in the local community. I appreciate all the stories I’ve heard and the collective reverence for the Redwood experience.
    I look forward to meeting you soon and am excited to collaborate with the alumni on staying connected and engaged with our unique school community.
Sincerely,
Barnaby Payne
Principal, Redwood HS

MORE GIANT LOSSES 2021-2022



Charlie Feeney taught English for many years, inspiring students with his creativity, wisdom, and love of learning.
Linda Tassano taught math at San Jose Middle School and San Marin High School in Novato, and Redwood High School in Larkspur.
Sid Gordon was one of the original Redwood teachers… he was a music teacher extraordinaire! In the early years, he would be out with the marching band on the football field.
Maria Van Buskirk Pitcairn was a beloved American Lit and English teacher known for her legendary Approaches to Grammar class.
Tony Compagno was a strong supporter of struggling students as a Counselor, Shop teacher, and WEEP (Work Experience) advisor.
