Welcome to Southwestern Middle School! It is an honor to serve the students, families, and staff of Southwestern, and I look forward to being a partner with all stakeholders. As I begin my tenure at SMS, I continue to be impressed by our school community’s greatest asset - its people. From the students and families to the staff whom I’ve met, the people of Southwestern are overwhelmingly kind and eager to make SMS the best middle school it can be.
Middle school is a very formative time in a student’s life. Our staff’s aim is to partner with parents to set students on a course that will bring them success at Southwestern and beyond. We hope to challenge students academically, help students develop socially and emotionally, and work with them to develop good habits that will transcend challenges in any school or work setting.
At Southwestern we understand that each student is important, yet each student is unique. We hope to build positive relationships in our building and be able to tailor each student’s educational path according to his or her needs. As a result, it is my sincere hope that each student has a school experience that is meaningful, memorable, and positive at SMS. I am excited and proud to be a Wildcat, and I look forward to our partnership this school year!
