Principal's Message

I would like to be the first to welcome you to Anacortes Middle School.  We are very excited to have you here at our school.  Anacortes Middle School serves 6th, 7th and 8th graders in the Anacortes School District.  Our staff is committed to our mission statement- Anacortes Middle School provides a challenging, supportive, and safe environment to encourage academic and social success for all.  We have a firm belief that if a student general welfare is not to standard, their academic success will suffer.  We pride ourselves in making sure that we know each of our students story and who they are as individuals and we address their needs, no matter who the student is.

I am very proud to be the principal of Anacortes Middle School.  Our staff and students have made our school a very reputable and respectful school throughout the county and state.  

We have been recognized as a School of Distinction for 3 years in a row.  The School of Distinction Award recognizes combined student learning improvement in math and reading; designating the top 5% of Washington schools demonstrating growth over a five year window of time.  Our staff, students, and parents have something to be very proud of with these awards.

In addition to offering quality instruction and academic rigor, the middle school offers a variety of extracurricular activities.  Participation in extracurricular activities allows each student to export his or her interests and forge meaningful relationships with other students.  We strongly encourage all students to participate in one of our many clubs or an after school sport.

Research indicates that students who are involved in after school activities are more successful academically than students who are not…my simple request is “Get Involved”!

I look forward to meeting and getting to know each of our students and parents during your middle school experience!
