Sudbrook Families and Friends,
Thank you for visiting Sudbrook Magnet Middle School’s website. I'm proud to be the principal at SMMS and am committed to providing our students and staff a safe, supportive, and positive learning environment. Our motto: "Relentless in our Pursuit of Excellence in academics, character, and leadership." symbolizes the commitment that our teaching and support staff have made to developing a positive learning environment in which students are able to achieve success in all areas. It is our vision to provide a “21st century teaching and learning environment that will enable each student to reach his/her highest potential so they will be able to compete in a global society.” Our educational approach will combine exploration and creativity, discipline and dedication, teamwork and individuality. Students will achieve academic excellence through participation in their magnet programs, a strong core curriculum as well as elective courses. We expect students to develop critical thinking and effective communication skills and the ability to make reasoned moral and ethical choices, as they practice tolerance in preparation for life in a multicultural society. Our mission is for our students to “Develop and use 21st century skills in academic excellence to meet the challenges of the 21st century’s global society.”
Middle School is a time to experience many changes. There will be more work and more social contacts. Students are expected to be in class on time and ready to learn. They should always demonstrate pride in their appearance, in the quality of their work, and in maintaining the beautification of our school. Everyone is expected to accept responsibility for their behavior, respect the rights of others and meet the goals that have been set to carry on the tradition of excellence, and make Sudbrook Magnet Middle School the best middle school in Baltimore County.
A solid partnership with parents will be a critical component to our success. Together we can support and nurture our next generation to properly prepare our future leaders and assist them in realizing their fullest potential emotionally, intellectually, socially, and physically in a supportive environment. I am excited for the opportunity to work with all students and parents to provide a productive learning environment that supports student success.
I look forward to this school year and the opportunity to build productive relationships with each of you and I am confident that we will have a very successful school year.
