Principal's Message

  • Mr. Ricardo Santana

    Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! 

    I want to begin by thanking you and recognizing the significant role you play in our school’s success. Through your unyielding support, both in and out of the classroom, we have not only maintained our status as an “A” rated school but, more importantly, are partners in helping your children grow and actualize their potential in meaningful ways. Entering my eighth year as principal of Glades Middle School, it continues to be my honor and aspiration to serve our students, staff, and school community with PRIDE, PASSION, AND PURPOSE! As the 2022-2023 school year approaches, I invite you to partner with us in the pursuit of our goal to make Glades Middle School a national model school. Through the expansion of our innovative programs such as the Cougar Path Cambridge Academy and 21st Century STEM Village, a keen emphasis on addressing the social-emotional needs of students, and our highly qualified staff, we are excited to provide an amazing middle school experience for your child. Please know that parental involvement is not only encouraged, but welcomed with open arms. Together, let’s make 2022-2023 our best year yet! The Future Continues to Be Bright at Glades! Please know that we are here to serve and that our doors are always open to you.
