Dear School Community,

My name is Mr. Henry and I am the new principal of the Academy of Tucson Middle School.  I am looking forward to serving the school community in this capacity.  I have served as a school principal and academic coach for 14 years in Phoenix, Arizona.  As a seasoned administrator I am looking forward to immersing myself in the school culture, collaborating with members of the school community, and exceeding academic expectations.  The opportunity to be a part of the school and Tucson community is an awesome prospect that I could not resist.

Creating a culture of high expectations will continue to be a key hallmark of the school.  This goal cannot be accomplished without school community members understanding how to use their piece to complete the puzzle.  I ask that we work together to fulfil our mission to foster good citizenship among our students and focus on academic prowess.  I will work hard each day to make sure that these dreams are realized by our students.  The team at Academy of Tucson Middle School has a heart for student learning and a passion to develop well-rounded students.

The 2020 – 21 academic year will offer the school community a new set of challenges and experiences.  The team at Academy of Tucson Middle School is equal to the task of providing engaging and thought-provoking lesson to our students.  It is important to keep the routine of student learning at the forefront of the school community anchored by all necessary safety protocols recommended by pertinent governmental agencies.  We are equal to the task of creating a safe and secure learning environment for our students while maintaining high expectations for our student body.

Communication is an essential part of a successful school community.  As the school leader I am committed to making sure that it happens each day on campus.  I am looking forward to meeting each of you throughout the academic year and fulfilling the academic mission.  Please do not hesitate to communicate any ideas or concerns directly to my office.  I look forward to making the 2020 -21 academic year the best year to come.

Best Regards,

Willie Henry, M.Ed.,

School Principal – Academy of Tucson Middle School
