Welcome to Red Lodge School District #1 – Superintendent Website

    My name is John Fitzgerald and this is my 18th year in education, beginning my 16th year in Red Lodge, and 6th year as superintendent.  Prior to my current position in Red Lodge, I served as a 4/5th grade teacher for three years and Roosevelt Middle School Principal and 5-12th grade activities director for seven years.  My first two years were spent on the  in Cut Bank, MT as 4th grade teacher.  

    I have been married to my wife, Annie, for 15 years and we have three young children, Kate, Nolan, and Shea.  We have lived in Red Lodge the past 15 years and we love this community.  Red Lodge has many great opportunities and it has been great to my family. 

    I am excited about the superintendent position and the challenges it brings.  I believe in the standards established by the district, and we will continue to provide students with a rigorous curriculum and safe atmosphere in which to work.  Through hard work, professional development, and collaboration I believe our district will continue to provide our youth with the best education possible.  I look forward to my continued efforts with the Red Lodge School District. 

    If you should have a questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at anytime.
