Hello! As the Middle School Principal, I am thrilled to welcome you to the Motley-Staples Middle School for the 2016-2017 school year! I truly feel honored to be part of such a great school district and surrounding community! I feel the future is full of opportunity and very bright for our Middle School!
At Motley-Staples Middle School we have a dedicated staff that works tirelessly toward offering our students a top notch middle school experience that values developing long lasting healthy relationships with our students and families and is rooted in both academic achievement and social and emotional growth. We strive, on a daily basis, to keep the whole child in mind as we not only prepare students for academic success, but to be successful people in society as well. We value and model being “lifelong learners” who are growth orientated.
At MSMS we offer a unique blend of both core academic classes (Math, Science, Social Studies and Language Arts) and a wide selection of elective courses to give our students opportunities to explore interests and potential career opportunities. While we are passionate about our strong core curriculum, we pride ourselves on the elective and Career/Tech Ed. courses we offer our students. Our offerings are very unique to our region, and allow our students to receive a very well-rounded educational experience! Our belief is that these opportunities, dedicated staff, and positive school culture are what drives us to be the Middle School of Choice in our region!
If you are interested in learning more about the opportunities we have at Motley-Staples Middle School, please feel free to contact us! We are proud of what we do here, and would love the opportunity to share it with you!
