Dear Parents, Students, and Friends of Midlothian Middle School:

On behalf of the administration and staff of Midlothian Middle it is my pleasure to welcome you to Midlothian Middle School. This is my sixteenth year as principal of Midlothian Middle and my 44th year with Chesterfield County Public Schools. I began my Chesterfield experience at Chester Middle in 1976 as an 8th grade student. I graduated from Thomas Dale High in 1981 and Virginia Tech in 1985. I spent 7 years teaching biology at L.C. Bird High School. In 1992, I completed my Master’s degree at VCU in Administration and Supervision and was hired as an assistant principal at Manchester Middle (1992-1996). I also worked as an assistant principal at Salem Middle (1996-1998) and Robious Middle (1998-1999). I came to Midlothian from Carver Middle (1999-2005) where I spent six years as principal. In May of 2003 I completed my Doctoral degree in educational leadership at the University of Virginia. Every school has a unique community and culture. I welcome the opportunity to work with all stakeholders and provide the best opportunities and experiences possible for our students. Please let me know how I can better support you and your student. I look forward to meeting you in person.

Patrick L. Stanfield
