Dear Kenmore West Families:

It is my honor to continue working with you as an Assistant Principal at Kenmore West High School!  I take great pride in our community as a former parent of KW students and, most recently, as a teacher in the district at Franklin Middle School. Together with the faculty and staff at West, I will work tirelessly to help your child grow into the best possible version of themselves. 

High school is an exciting and challenging time for all of our students. As our young people search for who they are, I hope to support their academic, emotional, and social growth. Every one of our students has special talents and unique aspirations. Our job as a collective community is to foster those and to provide our young people with the experiences and tools they need to build a successful life. 

I firmly believe in building strong home, community, and school connections. It truly does take a village and I am honored to be a part of our village. Through respectful, caring, trusting relationships, each of us plays a pivotal role in helping our children become all they can be. The Japanese poet, Ryunosuke Satoro, once wrote, "Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean."  When we come together, anything is possible. 

During this school year, I will be working primarily with 11th and 12th graders in Administrative Office 125. Please contact me by e-mail ( or phone (716-874-8401 x 21592) if I can be of any assistance.  

Here's to a great year! Go Devils!


Dr. Denise Grandits
