James Cecil, Principal
  • Dear Sawgrass Springs Community, 

    I am elated to welcome you to Sawgrass Springs Middle School for the 2021-2022 school year. We hope that everyone has had a wonderful and safe summer. We are very excited about our success and wish to thank everyone involved in our tradition of excellence. We are excited to be recognized as a Cambridge International School for the 2020-2021 school year and beyond.  

    I must say that we are very proud of our staff, students, and parents for their tireless dedication and support over the past year and a half. We adapted to all challenges that the pandemic and nation had to throw at us. After Spring Break 2020 we were given days to put our classes online for our students and community. We did it! This time last year, we were not sure how to create an entirely virtual school in a matter of weeks and we made it happen! Then they asked us to allow students to return to school and stay home. Miraculously, we did the seemingly impossible for our students, families, and community! We will continue to strive to make this school and safe place of learning for all students.

    We believe that our success stems from the hard work of excellent students, passionate teachers, dedicated staff, and the strong support for education from our parents and community partners. We will ensure that our students and teachers have all of the tools they will need to continue the fine tradition of excellence here at Sawgrass Springs Middle School. We have a strong academic focus, with many elective offerings, and various extra-curricular sports and clubs. Our faculty and staff are committed to developing critical/creative thinkers and compassionate citizens who are motivated to follow their passion in life.
