Chipman Students and Staff

Principal’s Message

Dear Students/Parents/Guardians:


As the proud Principal of W.T. Chipman Middle School, I want to welcome you to the 2017-18 school year. To our new students/parents/guardians, I am excited that you are now a member of our school, the Chipman Family!  To our returning students/parents/guardians, I look forward to continuing our successful partnership.  


The 2016-17 school year provided many opportunities for us to learn, grow, and succeed.  Many of our students were able to achieve their highest level of academic success for their marking period grades and state testing performance.  Our Honor Roll Assemblies provided a level of excitement that is difficult to put into words.  To honor over 300 students each marking period for their academic achievements was so rewarding.


As the School Leader, I believe in the growth mindset.  We will not rest on past success but strive to grow in every aspect, each day.  Collaboratively, our staff is dedicated to improving our instructional practices and providing the necessary support to allow each student to achieve a high level of success.


Personally, I take pride in being a husband and a father and look forward to further enhancing our family atmosphere in which our students, parents, and community members feel invested and connected to our success.


We will continue with our goal of building a student-centered environment where top-notch instruction, teamwork, and excellence are a part of our foundation.  Collectively, we will continue to evaluate our current standing, assess our instructional and operational needs, and update our strategic plan for further improvement.   


In closing, I want to assure you, that I will remain committed to improving our school program and will continue to strive for academic success for each student. I look forward to celebrating our accomplishments throughout the year. Go Spartans!
