Principal's Corner

    Mr. Keith Guarino
    Principal - Main Campus

    Dear Parents and Guardians,


    I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a team of dedicated educators who have been charged with the tremendous privilege and responsibility of being the bridge that connects and prepares our students at the Perth Amboy High School-Main Campus.


    My educational career has brought me from Barringer High School, Newark, New Jersey, where I taught Aerospace/Aviation Technology, to Piscataway High School, Piscataway, New Jersey, where I taught PLTW Project Lead the Way Digital Electronics Engineering and held the position of Supervisor of the Practical Arts, Family & Consumer Science and Business Departments.


    I served as Vice Principal of McGinnis Middle School before moving to the Main Campus, where I served as the 10th Grade Vice Principal. During my time in Perth Amboy, I have worked closely with various educational professionals, parents, guardians and community members.


    I hold a Master of Education from Saint Peters University, Jersey City, New Jersey, and a Bachelor of Aviation Science with an Aviation Technology minor from Eastern New Mexico University. I served in the United States Marine Corps as a Jet Mechanic and a licensed Federal Aviation Administration Air frame and Power Plant Inspector (Airplane Mechanic).


    Together, we will focus on providing a safe and nurturing student-centered learning community that fosters respect for individual differences.  The high expectations, which have been established by our competent and dedicated team of educators, will be maintained while ensuring that all of our students' social, emotional, and academic needs are met.


    By partnering with our parents, guardians, and talented staff, we will ensure that the necessary framework is in place to develop the character, confidence, and skills required to be productive college- or career-ready citizens.


    My educational philosophy of empowering, inspiring, and motivating our students to work hard and aspire to dream big is rooted in the belief that “Together, We Can Achieve More.” This can only happen in a safe and supportive environment where everyone feels welcomed and valued.


    So that you are always informed, kindly visit our website for the most up-to-date information about our school and all Main Campus-related things.


    I look forward to serving the students and families of Perth Amboy.
