The only principal you’ve known at Chaparral High School is retiring at the end of this school year.
CHS Principal Mark Rupcich’s best experiences are the success students have made during his eight years as our principal, such as the graduations, awards, and athletic events. He made one special memory at Chaparral High School and that is the support from students and teachers when he contracted cancer.
Rupcich served as principal at different schools for 17 years and has decided to retire from Chaparral High School in 2018.
“After I retire I am planning on hiking and doing lots of fishing and playing with my grandkids,” said Rupcich.
Rupcich has accomplished many things at Chaparral High School by including a new gym and raising SBA test scores. “Thank you all students and teachers for all the support I received,” said Rupcich, “I will miss this school very much. This isn’t a goodbye. It is a see you later, and I’ll always be a lobo.”
