LETTER FROM MIDDLE SCHOOL DIRECTOR

Welcome to Aspen Academy Middle School, where we embark on an exciting journey of growth, discovery, and achievement! As the proud director of this vibrant educational community, I am thrilled to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to our students, parents, and faculty. At our core, we value kindness, the power of doing good, and the importance of hard work. These values shape the foundation of our school culture and guide our interactions, making Aspen’s Middle School a place where every child can thrive and reach their full potential.

 

Our belief in the uniqueness of every child drives our commitment to teaching with the whole child in mind. We understand that academic success is just one facet of a well-rounded education. Our dedicated faculty and staff are passionate about fostering not only academic excellence but also social and emotional growth. We aim to create an environment where learning is not only engaging but fun. We encourage curiosity, creativity, and a love for learning, so that students are not just prepared for the challenges of middle and high school but are also equipped with the skills and mindset to succeed in life.

 

I am eager to witness the incredible growth and accomplishments that each of our students will achieve during their time here. Together we will make this middle school journey a memorable and fulfilling experience for your child. Please reach out to me should you need anything. Welcome to the Aspen Academy Middle School family!
