AHS Administration

Principal: Megan Barrington

At American High School we strive to help our students achieve in all aspects of their development.  It is my goal that during their time at American High School, every student make progress in their learning, expand their perspectives, and explore new interests.  As we kick off the start of a new school year, I am celebrating seven years at American High School and my twenty-second year in secondary education.  I feel privileged to work within a community of educators who all value student voices, a respectful population of students with a strong desire to learn, and a network of families and community members who continue to make decisions that are best for students.

I am fortunate to have the opportunity to work as Assistant Principal at American High School.  I have eighteen years of experience teaching elementary school in the Fremont Unified School District and am looking forward to continuing to help all of the students at American grow into responsible and respectful members of our diverse community.   I believe in American’s vision and will strive to support all students to reach their academic, civil, and social potential. As an administrator, one of my goals is to create an inclusive  school environment for all.  I look forward to working with the administrators, teachers, support staff, parents and students to ensure a positive transition back to in person learning and a successful high school experience for all students.

Assistant Principal: Sandhya Sharma

As a part of the FUSD community since 2008 both as a parent, staff member, and most recently as a biology teacher and Science Department Chair at American High, I am excited to serve in my role as Assistant Principal. The American community is a vibrant mix of enthusiastic students, supportive families, and a dedicated staff geared towards maintaining a tradition of excellence with students being the focus. I am proud to be a member of this “Eagle Nation” where a trusting relationship binds all elements of the school community. I firmly believe in education that is holistic and involves creativity, culture, technology, and intellectualism. I am committed to working in partnership with the students, the families, and the staff of American to nurture the academic, social, and emotional development of each of our students in an equitable manner and to ensure that our students experience success each and every day.

ASSIStant Principal: david lecount

I am excited and honored to be joining the American HS administrative team this year.  Although I am new to the Eagle Nation this is my 21st year in Fremont.  I have experience teaching at both the junior high and high school levels, and I have taught both science and history classes.  For the majority of my time in FUSD I have focused on helping and supporting ‘at promise’ students and students who have struggled in school.  I truly believe in education as a tool that has the ability to empower students and prepare them for their futures.  I also believe that ‘all means all’ and that all students need to be given the access and support they need to be successful with the goals they set for themselves.  I look forward to working with and supporting the students, parents and staff at American High School  this year.
