Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2018-19 school year at Stanley Middle School.  Stanley is a place where everyone belongs, and where we all are Wildcats!  This school year will be filled with chances for students to challenge themselves, take risks, explore, and learn, in a setting where they will feel supported and encouraged with every step they take.  Throughout our campus, every staff member works to achieve our goals of challenging and inspiring our students during their adolescent years.  


Stanley is a place of learning widely recognized for its academic success and the diversity of programs it offers to its students.  We pride ourselves on a rigorous, comprehensive academic program and a wide variety of enrichment activities.  In each classroom, our amazing teachers create engaging lessons and learning opportunities which allow each and every student to grow.


We also believe strongly in the social and emotional development of all our students, and that we are charged with helping young people to grow into responsible and ethical citizens in a global society.  To that end, we continue as a CHARACTER COUNTS!®  school, emphasizing the six pillars of character: Trust, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship, and we embrace our theme this year of Be The Change.  


As we navigate this year together, please stay involved and reach out whenever you need help.


Embrace your Wildcat Pride and have a great year!
