Swift Creek Middle School

Chesterfield County Public Schools


Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at Swift Creek Middle School! It is a great pleasure that I serve as principal of a school with a proven history of academic excellence.

We envision that Swift Creek Middle School will be a thriving, dynamic, and inspiring educational environment that produces self-directed learners with 21st-century skills and stimulates citizens of all ages to trust in, invest in, and benefit from public education.

At SCMS, our mission requires “All Hands on Deck.” It is of the utmost importance that the partnership we form with students, families, and the community will ensure that each student acquires the knowledge, skills, and core values necessary to achieve personal success and to enrich the community.

We are looking forward to a successful middle school journey with you and your student(s).
