It is with great sincerity, humility and excitement that I have been appointed Principal of the finest high school in all of California.  I have spent roughly 24 years in education at almost every level in secondary education.  I am a native of Fresno.  I graduated from Fresno State,  spent 16 years as an English Teacher,  18 years as a head boys’ basketball coach, and most recently  was the Principal at Natomas High School in Sacramento for the past 2 years.

 I relish the opportunity to embark upon a dream of mine to be part of a leadership team of a unique school where the environment is student focused, community embraced, academically driven and collaborative.  Although school accountability and student achievement is certainly the prime focus in the educational community, I firmly believe in the whole student- as that applies to a rounded educational experience from an intellectual, physical, emotional, and co-curricular aspect of a student’s educational experience.

I believe in being an approachable leader who is willing to listen and be flexible while being firm in my convictions that all students want to learn, succeed, and be challenged.  I have always enjoyed a strong and harmonious rapport with students, teachers, parents, community members, and other academic professionals.  I believe in being a visible instructional leader whose work ethic, energy, enthusiasm and commitment to school culture and climate are primary in the scope and visions of an instructional leader.

I look forward to a lengthy tenure here at Chico High School and have made Chico my home.

Reg Govan - Assistant Principal

I feel honored to be an Assistant Principal at Chico High School. I have lived in Chico since 1981 when I started working on my Masters in Public Administration. I took a fast six year separation from Chico to get married, get my teaching credential and start a family before coming back to stay. Since being back, I taught and served as an assistant principal at Gridley High School. In 1994 I became assistant principal at Paradise High School. Through friends on the Chico High staff, I learned about the progressive CHS student-centered programs. I have been a proud member of the Panther family since 2000. Go Panthers!

Mike Allen - Assistant Principal

I am very proud and honored to serve as an assistant principal at Chico High. This is my eighth year working in the Chico Unified School District. I am grateful for the experiences and support that I have received since becoming a part of it.

I am originally from the East Bay Area and have lived in Chico for the last sixteen years. I am a graduate of Butte Community College and California State University, Chico. My family has embraced the Chico community, just as the community has embraced us. It is my pleasure to be able to contribute to the future of this exceptional city and school.

I work with students whose last names begin with the letters H-P. However, I am willing to serve any student, parent or community member that has a concern. I am dedicated to keeping CHS a safe, clean and productive learning environment for all students.

Go Panthers!!

Brian Boyer Assistant Principal

It is a bit odd to think that I have been working in public education for nearly half my life, but that is the case.  After graduating from CSU Chico in 1983, I taught in Southern California.  In 1989 my wife and I moved back to Chico to raise our family. I was able to land a job at CHS as a Math teacher and continued in that role until 2004.  At that point I moved into administration.

I am committed to the progressive instructional programs available here at CHS and I am grateful for the opportunity to work with the dedicated, enthusiastic, and caring students and staff which make up the CHS community. 

I count myself lucky to live in Chico and even luckier to work at Chico High.  I look forward to many continued years of service here at Chico High
