Principal's Corner

Welcome to Andersen Middle School!

Hafa Adai AAFB Families/Partners AKA Dragon Nation and welcome to School Year 23-24! It is again an honor to be the principal of such a diverse and inspiring group of students, educators, and staff. The middle years are an exciting time when children embark upon new adventures in the world of learning. Each year will provide important transitions and the acquisition of new skills that will enhance each student’s ability to apply learning beyond the school building. I look forward to a rewarding and exciting year in which we can learn and grow together. As we enter another great school year, I am filled with joy and anticipation for the continued progress, social emotional growth, and academic success of the AMS Dragons. Our purpose statement, “Dragons are F.I.R.E. (Future-Ready, Inclusive, Resilient, Exceptional students) Leaders” embodies our commitment to nurturing the whole child and creating a supportive environment so students can rise as leaders in our dragon home and beyond.

Above all, here at AMS we want to ensure that each of our students reach their highest academic potential because we are committed to providing a challenging and rigorous educational program that helps our students progress based on their needs and interests. We strive for academic excellence while maintaining a safe, nurturing, fun, and engaging environment for your child to thrive in. Of course, in order to accomplish these goals, your assistance will play a vital role in helping your child succeed. So, continue to talk to your students about how they are feeling and their school day, sign up for our online grading program, attend our monthly parent forum with the principal, and stay connected with your child’s teacher throughout the year. We also encourage families to stay informed by visiting our AMS website and Facebook page regularly. We cannot do this without YOU!

As always, we remind you that our DoDEA Vision and Mission Statements are embedded within the hallowed hallways of Andersen Middle School:

Mission: Educate, Engage and Empower military-connected students to succeed in a dynamic world

Vision: Excellence in Education for Every Student, Every Day, Everywhere

And our F.I.R.E. (Future-Ready, Inclusive, Resilient, Exceptional students) can be seen everywhere. I am certain you will enjoy the warmth, joy, and smiles you see on our students faces as you experience Andersen Middle School when you visit.
