    Patriot Parents/Guardians and School Community,

    Welcome to Plantation Middle School! It is with great pride and excitement that I serve as principal of Plantation Middle for the 2023 -2024 school year. I am honored to lead such an amazing school and will continue to focus on academic excellence and a culture of caring. I am committed to fostering relationships with our teachers, staff, parents/guardians, and the school community to provide our students with a high-quality educational experience. It is my goal to help every student feel welcomed, connected, and a part of our Patriot family. We will continue to work towards excellence in and out of the classroom by focusing on innovative data-driven instruction, social-emotional learning, and by providing challenging experiences with opportunities for all scholars.

    I have been dedicated to my career in the field of education for more than 23 years. My educational career experiences include being a teacher, an athletics coach, ESE Behavior Specialist/Educational Specialist, and an administrator. My leadership experiences have afforded me the opportunity to develop partnerships, and create and sustain a positive school culture, by implementing programs to meet the needs of all students.

    As your principal, it is important to me that everyone (teachers, staff, parents, and students) who enters the doors of Plantation Middle School is excited to be here. This positive attitude and culture will enable us to navigate the challenges we will face in our pursuit of excellence, in a positive and supportive environment.

    Again, I am honored to serve as principal of Plantation Middle School, and I encourage you to become involved in every way possible. My door is always open, and I welcome your input. Please feel free to stop in or call to make an appointment to discuss your suggestions, ideas, or concerns, to make our school the best it can be. I look forward to meeting you soon!

    We will Speak Excellence, Model Excellence, and Achieve Excellence. Excellence is the Expectation!

    Sincerely,

    Tariq D. Qaiyim, Principal
