Hidden River Middle School


Brett WilleWelcome to the 2014-15 school year!

Hello Hawk Families!

As the new principal at Hidden River Middle School I couldn't be more excited to work with and serve such an amazing group of students, staff, and families.  In my short time here I've been most impressed with the community as a whole and the willingness of our staff to commit to what is best for kids. That foundation and commitment makes me proud and is, without question, the first step in our journey to become a blue ribbon school.  

In thinking about all that we want to accomplish at Hidden River, I think it's most helpful to begin with the end in mind.  What does the end result look like and what are the behaviors that we most want to see from our students?  When I think about the future in that manner, I see many things ... one of which is bus loads of 8th graders on the final day of school, tears filling their eyes, wishing they didn't have to leave. In essence, the experience that we have provided our students is so great and so impactful that it changes them forever ... I can't think of a better picture of what it means to make a difference as educators and a better compliment that we've fulfilled our mission and purpose.  

But the important question in the here and now is ... how do we get there?  Our staff has begun to grapple with that question this year and, with so many new staff members on our team, we've focused first on building consensus together on what's most important to our work, why we are here, and what our values and commitment are so that we can achieve great things and have that lasting impact on our kids.  Ultimately I believe that all of our students will find success and that all of them can and will learn at high levels ... it's our job as a staff to guarantee that becomes a reality for each of them.  That's no easy task but it's the right mindset and it's what our kids deserve. I'm excited to begin this work and I look forward to partnering with our parents and community members to make Hidden River Middle School an award winning school, both in the eyes of our educational system and, most importantly, in the eyes of those that matter the most ... our students.  

our values
high levels of learning for all students
experience that prepares them for life and one they won't forget.

Important Notice About Internet Safety

The best way to protect children from online harm is to keep computers in a family area of the home. Visibility allows parents to look over the students' shoulders without being too oppressive. Young children should have a parental chaperone whenever they are on the Internet. Two sites that discuss these issues and offer advice can be found at www.safekids.com and www.safeteens.com.

Hyperlinks to staff web sites (located on the Staff page) are provided for student and parent convenience, and all staff web sites are hosted by external Internet service providers. Monroe Public Schools assumes no liability for content contained on external service provider sites. Filtering software from one of the providers listed below is recommended to prevent unauthorized access to sites beyond the District's control.
