Dear Midlo Family: Welcome to Midlothian High School’s website.
I am beyond excited for this upcoming school year. I am so fortunate to work with such talented and hardworking students, a dedicated faculty and staff, and of course, a supportive community. Working together, in collaboration, we certainly comprise a Community of Excellence.
As I enter my ninth year as principal of Midlothian High School I plan to work harder than ever to ensure all students receive a high quality education, preparing each student to be college and career ready. Midlothian High School faculty strive to provide students with an engaging and relevant education to help us all Imagine a Better Tomorrow.
Our school will continue to support, prepare, and help our students to RISE up to be the best version of themselves. When we ask students to RISE up, we ask that they, along with the support of our faculty, place an emphasis on being responsible, demonstrate integrity, be sincere, and provide one another with equitable opportunities.
As a 2019 National Blue Ribbon School, our students are known for consistently performing amongst the best high schools in the state of Virginia on the SOL, SAT, ACT, AP, and IB assessments. Beyond end of year assessments, it is my hope all students enjoy a high school experience which is academically challenging, memorable, and rewarding; serving as the foundation to academic and personal growth.
The website is designed to provide everyone easy access to a wealth of information and resources. As Midlothian High School continues to foster a 21st century learning environment supported by Chromebooks, students will have direct access to our school website and all its resources.
I look forward to supporting each of you to maximize your potential while attending Midlothian High School.
