A Letter from Mr. Gabriel
James M. Coughlin High School

Dear Parent/Guardian,

My name is Hal Gabriel; I am the new principal at James M. Coughlin High School. Let me begin by saying I am not a stranger in the Wilkes-Barre Area School District. I have been a teacher, dean of students, assistant principal and building principal for over 21 years. I have also been an assistant football coach in the Wilkes-Barre Area School District as well. My educational background, I am a G.A.R. High School graduate, I received my undergraduate from King’s College, my Master’s Degree from Bloomsburg University and my Superintendent Letter from Edinboro University. I am also a proud father of two children as well. 

I am very excited to be a part of your son/daughter’s final year/years of their high school careers. It is such an honor to be part of a great tradition here at James M. Coughlin High School. Please know my door is always open and my phone line is always available for you. If you have any questions or concerns about your child or any questions concerning Coughlin High School, please contact me at 570-826-7101 EXT.2110

Thank you

Hal Gabriel
