Wayne Lamas has been the Principal of Frontier High School since August 1997. Prior to this promotion he was Assistant Principal at Channel Islands High School for 7 years.
Wayne has been a tremendous asset to Frontier. There have been many changes over the past 15 years that Mr. Lamas had to implement and each time his first concern was the wellbeing of the students and how it would impact their success.
In 2007 during our WASC accreditation visit the team was so impressed with our school that we received a 6 year accreditation. In their report they referred to Wayne Lamas as an “exemplary Principal”.
Wayne supports the teachers and staff in their endeavors to recognize student accomplishments or start new programs outside of school hours. We have had drama productions, blood drives, ballroom dancing lessons, year book. This year we sent our first Mock Trail to competition and they are the first continuation school to ever compete in the county of Ventura.
Wayne is a “hands on” principal. He is highly respected by the entire staff and students. It is not uncommon to see him answering phones, picking up trash, or helping to fix someone’s car… We are all willing to go the extra mile because he does too. He is the biggest supporter of his staff and is always looking for ways to recognize them.
