6th Grade AP- Mr. Armando Alejo
Eagle parents, students, and community members, it is with GREAT pleasure that I serve as your 6th grade Assistant Principal. My last fifteen years have been spent serving as a behavior specialist, instructional coach, teacher, and administrator for Broward County Schools. In those roles, I was able to instill my passion for doing what's best for students every day. Having spent most of my career at the middle school level, I have a unique perspective and know what it takes for students to make a successful transition into seventh grade and beyond. I invite you to take an active role in your student’s education. I have an open-door policy and ask that you stop in and see us, we cannot do it without your support!
I am VERY excited about being an Eagle and the opportunity to serve our community! If you have any questions, comments, or concerns my door is always open.Capt. Armando Alejo, M.EdMr. Armando Alejo was born in Havana, Cuba and raised in Hialeah, a suburb of the city of Miami, Florida. In 2004 his true calling was realized and he made a career change from Accounting to Education. Following the footsteps of his mother and two brothers, who are also administrators, he is the fourth member of his family to serve in education. Mr. Alejo began his career in Education as a Math teacher, also working as an Athletic Director and Instructional coach before being appointed as an Assistant Principal at Fort Lauderdale High school. He earned his undergraduate degree in Accounting from Florida International University and Master's in Educational Leadership from Florida Atlantic. Lastly, Mr. Alejo was selected by the Florida Department of Education for the development of FSA and EOC assessments over the course of three consecutive years.

It is with great pleasure that I welcome our returning 7th graders this year. I believe that as the 7th Grade Assistant Principal at Attucks Middle School, I must continue to set the standard for a rich, student-centered learning environment. As part of a new generation of instructional leadership, my philosophy centers around integrating the necessary resources to develop an intellectually, emotionally, and physically sound human being capable of making informed decisions and prospering in a democratic society. The purpose of education is to provide the necessary skills and competencies for an educated citizenry to promote a democratic society. I must be an instructional leader making data lead decisions and willing to take risks to maintain a competitive edge. This contemporary concept reflects my philosophy that all agents of the school district are responsible for promoting student achievement. As an instructional leader, I want to be easy to understand, practical, sensible and responsive to the environment of the school and the values of the community.
My goals for Attucks Middle School are as follows:
- To make certain that every student meets and exceeds the minimum requirements for promotion and is prepared to be productive citizens in society.
- To make certain that students successfully compete at the highest levels nationally and internationally and are prepared to make well-reasoned, thoughtful, and healthy lifelong decisions.
- To provide an environment that is drug-free and protects students health, safety, and civil rights.
- To provide the appropriate curriculum resources and professional development necessary to ensure that all students receive an equitable education.
- To offer opportunities for parents and guardians to be active partners in achieving our school improvement and educational accountability goals.
It is an honor to continue to serve our wonderful community.
