We are happy that you have entrusted the staff here at Stephen M. White Middle School with the education of your child. Stephen M. White Middle School is well on its way to becoming the best in the city. This school year began with several positive indicators. So far, student attendance has increased and we are moving toward our goal of 96% in seat attendance and our school suspension rates have fallen. We are constantly working to better serve you and your family.
As we continue to increase our academic expectations and move toward Common Core readiness in the areas of reading, writing, and discussing, we will be transitioning to a Pre-Common Core based curriculum that will assist us in preparing your child to succeed in high school and college. It will also support your child in mastering the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS).
We are continuously raising the standards here at the school, so that we are providing students with an educational experience of the highest quality. In doing so, we will be holding students accountable to meeting those standards. Each Stephen White student will be expected to successfully complete the required coursework, participate in needed academic interventions, and follow school policies. We truly believe that they are all capable of achieving, and we will not accept anything less than their best.
In order to continue with the great progress that we are making, we will need your support. Please assist us in preparing your child for high school, college and career by ensuring that they are at school on time each day and prepared for class. It takes a team to ensure that “Excellence is a habit!” I look forward to working with you in this endeavor. Go Knights!
Mrs. Adaina Brown
