Susan Caprio: I am the Assistant Principal of Organization, Career and Technical Education (CTE) and Physical Education. I am responsible for all organizational facets of the school such as budget, purchasing, building management and payroll. I supervise the CTE and PE departments including coordinating all CTE industry exams, purchasing supplies, and working with the Work Based Learning Coordinator on internships, job placement, and industry trips. My office organizes and arranges trips for students, orders food for events, and coordinates groups using our gym and cafeteria.
Vasilis Psoras: Principal Arzuaga invited me to an interview at George Westinghouse H.S. After meeting with principal Arzuaga and Assistant Principal Girard, Mr. Arzuaga offered me the position of Assistant Principal of Mathematics and Special Education. I have spent the last year and half creating systems in both of my departments to ensure that students have the best opportunity to succeed in high school and after graduation. It is my philosophy that students should be taught curricula that is interdisciplinary, relevant, applicable and meaningful. A truly educated individual is never confined to the category of one specialized field, but rather has an appreciation and an understanding of other disciplines.
Valerie Girard: Many of our students past and present fondly refer to me as Ms. “G.” One of my many roles as an assistant principal at Westinghouse is the instructional leader for ELA, Fine Arts, Foreign Language, Science, and Social Studies. My ultimate goal is to ensure our students have the skills and knowledge necessary for them to achieve their highest potential in their post-secondary choice of college or career. As an assistant principal of supervision student success is my ultimate responsibility. “Real education should consist of drawing the goodness and the best out of our own students. What better books can there be than the book of humanity.“

Additionally we offer shared instruction classes for students who are still enrolled in their day school and need additional classes to graduate on time.
