Mr. Garrett Comanzo, Assistant Principal

  • Dear Patchogue-Medford Parents/Guardians and Students.

    To those of you who are new to our school, welcome! To those who are already part of our high school family, we’re glad you’re here with us.

    As an Assistant Principal at Patchogue-Medford High School, I urge all our students (and parents/guardians) to take full advantage of everything this school has to offer and get/be involved.

    I began my educational career in the health and physical education field and my coaching experience in several sports allows me to bring a spirited and dedicated approach to my current position. I understand fully that to achieve that coveted championship trophy, each team member must work hard and must work together.  This, however, does not only apply to the playing field but to your education and life in general.  Each day, it’s important to start the day on a positive note understating that we must put our best foot forward and come to school ready to engage. While you walk the halls of Patchogue-Medford High School take full advantage of the educational and extracurricular opportunities.  Pay attention and participate, but do not let your education end when you exit the classroom.  Continue to learn as you get involved in the clubs and afterschool activities or the many sport programs available here at our high school.

    To name a few, some of my major responsibilities I manage are the preparations of the master course schedules for teachers and students as well as graduation planning and student promotion.  I can tell you firsthand that this district is here to ensure that our students are given the tools they need to become well-rounded adults. We’re committed to offering our kids a variety of courses and we’re always inventing innovative ways to make sure that our students can take advantage of these opportunities.  We are committed to making certain each graduate exits the halls of Patchogue-Medford High School prepared to take on whatever it is that their future has in store for them whether it be college, trade school, joining the military, or finding employment.

    Giving your very best effort applies not only on the sports field but also education and in life. Looking forward to working with all of you as we continue together and give our very best effort to reach our utmost potential as students, staff, and community members. 

Mr. Garrett Comanzo
