Greetings Andover Middle School Students, Parents, and Community:
Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year where “Golden Eagles will soar to excellence!” It is with great pride that I welcome you and your family to Andover Middle School, the “Eagle’s Nest”, where our goal is to provide the best education for your child. It is an honor to serve as your Principal. Being that this is my second year as a Principal, I am excited to encompass on the academic journey with each student and guide them towards their fullest potential.
This year will be my second year at our school, which is currently a “C” school. Our goal is to continue to meet academic standards, enhance our curriculum, and guide our students to the highest level of academic success. We will achieve this with “Planning – Preparation – Communication = PPC”. Currently our school consists of approximately 460 students, grades sixth through eighth and 50 faculty/staff members. The new academic year is an exciting time of continued change that allows for the exploration of the abilities that our students possess. The faculty and staff at Andover are committed to providing our students with the resources needed to promote academic skills. Through a positive and collaborative learning environment, we aim to increase academic performance, while emphasizing the core values of integrity, responsibility, and respect. We believe that each person is responsible for being their best and designing their path. Our staff’s commitment to our students is what sets them apart and enables opportunities for growth within the “Eagle’s Nest.”
As Principal, my main objective is providing a wonderful academic experience to each student and remind them that they can satisfy all that they set their minds to. As a former Coach, I have witnessed the transformation that consistency, opportunity, and dedication can provide in a child’s life. At Andover Middle School, we make it our mission to commit to each student’s expansion and promote the power behind believing in themselves. As our slogan says, “if we stay ready, no need to get ready!”
The “Eagle Nest” is a wonderful place to teach and learn. A great contributor to our school’s success is the strong support of our parents, our school personnel, district administration, and our school board. This collaborative effort is essential for our continued growth.
On behalf of the faculty, staff, and administration, thank you for supporting our school. We hope you enjoy our website and the information it provides. Please feel free to contact us for any further information.
