It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Ponce de Leon Middle School, an International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme. As the principal, it is my honor to be the instructional leader. It will be my personal goal to continue the tradition of academic excellence and school pride, as well as providing students with a plethora of opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities and community service projects.
As a school community (parents, teachers, support staff and administration), we all share a vital role in encouraging our students to achieve their potential. We at Ponce de Leon Middle School, will enable our students to become active learners through relevant curriculum that will be academically challenging and engaging. This environment is supported by a faculty and staff that offer the finest middle school international education possible. This year I look forward to continuing the tradition of providing expanded opportunities for our students to obtain the real-world skills necessary to succeed in an increasingly evolving society as we continue elevating Ponce de Leon Middle to high levels of performance.
