Principal Jessica Hutchinson

Dear Vintage Crusher Community,

Welcome to the 2022-23 school year! I am honored to serve as principal of Vintage High School and excited to start the new school year. 

For those of you who do not know me, I’d like to share a little about myself and my background.   I was born in and grew up in New Jersey. As a college student I had the opportunity to work as a track and field coach for a local high school. Around the same time, I began working for the language program at my college teaching French in the summer to high school students as well as English as a Second Language to adults. I loved working with kids and helping people; I’d always been drawn to public service. After college, I got my first teaching job at Squaw Valley Academy near Lake Tahoe and the rest is history as I have been working in education ever since.  I taught French and AVID at Vintage High School for seven years and left only to take my first job in administration. For the past nine years I have worked as vice principal and principal at Sonoma Valley High School. I am thrilled and honored to return “home” to the Vintage community once again.  

My family and I live in Napa. We have two boys who are in elementary and middle school. Like you, we juggle work and family, and a lot of our time is spent at my boys’ sporting events. I look forward to watching them grow up through the local youth programs, and eventually wear the Vintage uniform themselves. 

I am proud of the athletic department and the strong reputation we have in not just the Vine Valley Athletic League, but the North Coast Section. Our success on the fields of play is a big piece of that, but so is the success in the classroom by our student athletes. With almost 700 students participating throughout the school year, I recognize the importance of the connections made and the positive influence our programs have on our students. 

I am grateful for your partnership and support of our students, teams, and programs. I look forward to meeting you at sporting events and cheering on our Vintage teams together.  

Go Crushers!
