parsons, j

Welcome to the Venture School website! I am so proud to be the Assistant Principal of Venture School. I am blessed to work with some of the best educators and amazing students that Arlington has to offer. Our campus is unique in the fact that we can meet students where they are and move them toward graduation in an alternative setting. Our teachers identify the individual needs of students and assist them in achieving success. We work diligently to develop a safe and engaging environment for all students. We believe that all students can learn and become productive, responsible.
