Principal's Message

  • Mrs. Wessinger, Princpal

    Welcome to New River Middle School, “Home of the Sharks.”  I am extremely proud to continue as the principal of this amazing educational institution where we focus on the “whole” child, creating excitement for learning through experiential and relevant opportunities for all students.  It continues to be our mission at New River to provide a rigorous educational experience in an environment where students feel safe, respected, nurtured, and supported.

    New River Middle is a Certified Magnet School, recognized as a Magnet School of Excellence and a Magnet School of Distinction by Magnet Schools of America.  As such, we will continue to bring learning to life. Innovative learning and making connections are key components to educational success.

    New River Middle School has a committed team of educators who work tirelessly to meet the needs of the student body. My job is to support staff, students, and families.  I am committed to ensuring that all students have a positive experience and have their individuals needs met.

    We are on campus ready and willing to assist families with their needs.  Please reach out to us with any questions, concerns, or requests and we will do our best to accommodate.  I have an open-door policy and we are here for you.

    It is a great time to be a Shark.  Looking forward to an amazing 2022-2023 school year!

    Wishing you well,

    Melinda Wessinger
