  • Welcome to the informational website of Palmetto Middle School!

    I am elated and honored to serve as the school’s Principal for the 2023-2024 school year. The purpose of this website is to provide you with an overview of our vision, mission, and core values; as well as to briefly introduce you to the faculty and staff who take great joy and pride in providing each student with an equitable and equal educational opportunity. You will also become acquainted with our school’s programs, activities, and instructional practices.

     Palmetto Middle School is a great place to teach and learn. Our school’s climate is safe, secure, and supportive. Upon entering our facility, you will receive a warm and genuine welcome. You will experience customer service that is second to none. Further, it is our intention to develop and maintain instructional practices that are relevant and engaging. The instructional program is not the extent of what we are committed to providing for all of our students. We believe that social and emotional learning is just as important as a student’s academic success. Thus, to that end, we seek to provide each student with a holistic educational experience that will prepare them to succeed inside and outside of the classroom.

     I believe that communication is a vital part of any type of relationship. So, as we strive to build positive relationships with all stakeholders, it is our commitment to keeping our partners involved and engaged in the serious business of educating our students. This website will be updated on a regular basis. You will be able to stay abreast of all that is happening in and around our school by making “virtual” stops to this website. However, in the event that this website does not provide you the information that you need, please do not hesitate to contact me via telephone, or feel free to stop in and you will be given the service and attention that you need.

     I look forward to partnering with you as we pursue social, emotional, and academic success for our students!
