Mr. Matthew Monson


One of my favorite quotes is “Be an opener of Doors” attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson. This year at LAMP our students, faculty, and staff have been door openers. This began in earnest with the opening of the new facility. Our students have often opened the door of success this year; from sports to clubs to school wide activities and events the door of success was never shut at LAMP. LAMP has yet again been ranked at the number one high school in the state by several different services. While the students garner the accolades, you and I know it takes a fully engaged and energetic community to push our children to succeed. This community starts with our parents. LAMP parents are opening doors through volunteerism both in the school and the river region. Thank you, parents, for be willing to assist our students, faculty and staff throughout the school year. The LAMP faculty is also opening the door to success this year through their tireless dedication to our students. Thank you, faculty!!! I look forward to many exciting days in the weeks and months ahead as together we continue to matriculate toward the ever evolving measure of greatness that has become a fundamental belief of LAMP!

My experience in education encompasses my entire life. My parents are teachers and I have spent my entire life in school. I have taught in both public and private school throughout Alabama across multiple grade levels. I am excited daily by the opportunity to lead the outstanding students, faculty and staff here at LAMP High School. Finally, I value communication with my stakeholders please feel free to contact me anytime if I can do anything to assist or help make the LAMP experience better.
