Principal's Message

Dear Magee Bears,


Welcome to a new school year and another exciting year of learning and adventure at Magee Academy of Arts and Sciences! We appreciate the hard work and dedication of our amazing teachers, staff members, families, communities, and support groups who join us in making Magee a wonderful place to be!   


Staff members have been busy this past summer getting our school ready for students.  As you can see, we just finished painting our campus with our school colors, and have a variety of technology devices ready to be used by eager minds in our Innovation Labs and classrooms.  We are thrilled that our students will continue to benefit from our excellent teachers, new technology in the Innovation Lab, and upgraded facilities.


We encourage all parents, when possible and age appropriate, to send their students to school walking or on a bicycle. For all parents who drive their students to school, please be mindful of speed limits and other safety measures so that our school can continue to be safe for our students and neighbors. 


It’s a pleasure to come to work each day and be joined by a fabulous team of dedicated people who are passionate about educating students and committed to supporting and serving all students and families. If you haven’t had a chance to visit, please stop by. We would love to show you and brag a little about what we have planned for this school year!

If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me and know that my door is always open. I can be reached at


Here’s to a spectacular 2017-18 school year!
