Brookside Parents and Students,
Hello, my name is James Patrizi and serve as the Assistant Principal at Brookside High School. I am excited and looking forward to another successful school year here at Brookside High School.
I am a graduate of John Carroll University, Kent State University, and The University of Akron. I began my teaching career as a high and middle school Computer teacher in the Richmond Heights Local Schools. From there I spent eight years in the Chagrin Falls Exempted Village Schools working as a Business and Computer teacher in both the high and middle schools, as well as serving as the Assistant Athletic Director and coaching six years. A move to the West Side of Cleveland also came with a change in schools as I spent eight years at Westlake High School as a Business and Computer teacher; serving as the Department Co-Chairperson my final year and coaching four years. I am excited to work with the Brookside High School community on continuing the strong work ethics and passions that exemplify the Sheffield-Sheffield Lake City School District.
Communication and a strong relationship between staff, parents, and the community are keys to success in working with our students. Please feel free to reach out anytime with any questions and concerns.
