Principal's Message

Dear MS358 Community,

As your new Principal, I would like to thank you for your dedication to our school's growth and discovery! I'm inspired by the way our students continue to live out our core values of **F.I.R.E.** – Fellowship, Integrity, Resilience, and Excellence.  These values shape a school community where everyone feels supported and driven to succeed.

Our unique magnet status allows us to provide enriching learning experiences centered around **S.T.E.A.M.** principles. By blending science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics, we empower our students to become creative problem-solvers and innovators.

As a proud member of the Magnet Schools of America, we embrace their 5 pillars: diversity, innovative curriculum and professional development, academic excellence, high-quality instructional systems, and family and community partnerships. These pillars guide us in creating a learning environment where every student has the opportunity to excel.

Our primary focus is clear: to help every student graduate on or above grade level, while equipping them with the skills they need to thrive in an ever-changing world.  Let's make this an outstanding year, working together to build a school community where learning is exciting and achievement is celebrated.
