Principal's Message

Welcome to the Scotts Ridge Middle School website! We hope you will find our page to be a useful tool to explore. As a school, we strive to provide a nurturing environment where all members of our community feel valued, connected, and supported. Our core mantra states, “Nothing is more important than how we treat people.” We work diligently to live by that belief on a daily basis.

The tenets of our STAR program – Safety, Trust, Accountability & Respect – underscores the importance of our culture and climate. We are fortunate to have an incredibly dedicated staff who seek to motivate our students to become independent thinkers, foster resilience, and inspire hopes, dreams, and aspirations.

Collectively and collaboratively, we are committed to excellence. Our goal is to provide every child with a rewarding educational experience. We consider you partners in this endeavor, and we welcome your input and suggestions. As always, thank you for your support!
