Mission

Mission Statement: Pacific Middle School expects academic achievement, celebrates diversity, and promotes self-discipline and community responsibility.

Principal

It is with great excitement and enthusiasm that I prepare for the 2013-2014 school year as Pacific Middle School’s new principal. With a strong dedication to life-long learning and a belief that each student in Highline Public Schools can achieve at high levels, I have prepared the following goals to guide my work at PACMS. 

I look forward to engaging with the school and surrounding communities to know every student by name, strength, and need.

Goal 1:
Establish and nurture positive and productive relationships with the members of the Pacific Middle School family in order to better understand the history, norms, values, and traditions of the school community-at-large.

Goal 2:
Establish a culture for continuous school improvement by identifying strengths and opportunities for student growth and staff development.

Goal 3:
Collaboratively develop and communicate a clear vision for continuous improvement (academic growth and achievement), grounded in research-based outcomes and supported by data and feedback from staff members, parents, partners, and students.

Goal 4:
Rally the Pacific Middle School community toward achieving academic and social success in the goals outlined in our shared vision statement through:

Strengthening Instructional Programs
Developing a Clear and Shared Focus
Committing to Academic Growth
Accountability for All
Celebrating of our Diversity
Increasing Cultural Competencies
Creating a Safe and Orderly Environment
Increasing Engagement with Family and Community
