    Learners Today...Leaders Tomorrow

    KHS Families:
    I'd like to take a moment to welcome all of you to the 2022-2023 school year!  I am so excited about this school year as we welcome one of the largest incoming Freshman classes in over 10 years!  
    As you will quickly learn, KHS is all about FAMILY.  We are a true representation of the two wonderful towns of Union Beach and Keyport.  As both of these communities are close and tight-knit, so is our school!  
    We pride ourselves on providing a safe, challenging, and fun educational experience for all of our students!

    This is my 16th year serving the students of KHS and my 12th year as Principal.  We have made great changes and improvements over the years and this year there are strong opportunities for more success.  I pride myself on teaching students and staff the importance of prioritizing in life.  Taking care of each other first in a servant leadership style. 
    Keyport has been my second home for a large majority of my professional career.  Although I don't live in town, there are plenty of times I feel that I do!  For those of you who know me, you will attest to the fact that I am a family man first.  I spend most of my personal time with my wife and three children, who range in age from 13-17.  We are either at KHS events, or soccer games, the beach, or just sitting as a family in the backyard by a fire!  
    I have a passion for my students and staff and want nothing but the best for everyone!  My door is always open and I can always be reached via email @ mwaters@kpsdschools.org.  If you are on twitter, please follow me @_khsprincipal.
    As always, Once a Red Raider, Always a Red Raider!
