Principal's Message

  • Sabine Phillips Principal

    Hello Parents, Students & School Community,

    Welcome to our MMS website! I am very proud to be the Principal at Mar”great” STEM Magnet Middle School! Yes, Margate Middle is Mar”great” Middle because of our teachers, staff, students, parents, and community!

    Our school accomplished so much last school year, and we expect to make even greater gains this year! Some of the accomplishments include: 

    • Selected as a Magnet School of Excellence by Magnet Schools of America (only 5 in Broward). 
    • Won 1st place among all middle schools in the nation by mastering the most words on (over 26,000 words mastered). 
    • Had 1st place student winners in different competitions: Debate State Champion and World Languages District Champions. 
    • Our student clubs won 1st place in district competitions: NJHS in scrapbook and Student Government in service project. 
    • Our sports teams excelled: Division Champions in Boys Basketball, Regional Champions in Track & Field.

    These are just a few of the top awards we received, but there were many more accolades bestowed on our students and staff!

    We begin the 2023-2024 school year with a lot of excitement and high expectations. Our students and staff will follow a block schedule beginning in August, and I anticipate great success with this scheduling change. Students will attend 4 classes a day, every other day and will have 8 classes total. This allows students to enjoy more elective classes to peak their interests, and teachers and students will have more time to learn and master content. Be sure to keep a printout of the BLUE & GOLD SCHOOL DAY CALENDAR to stay updated on the dates of each block.

    Our school plans to SOAR TO NEW HEIGHTS this year, and that will be made possible because of you and your support! Never hesitate to reach out to me via email to offer your comments, feedback, or suggestions:

    Educationally yours,

    Sabine B. Phillips, Principal
