From the Principal
Welcome to Forest Lake Area Middle School!
For the students believing in their ability to think, innovate, accomplish and create, these are very exciting times, filled with immense opportunity. It is not unreasonable to imagine that when most of our incoming 7th graders will have retired, humans will have landed on Mars, discovered a way to cure cancer, and revolutionized the way we respond to our energy demands. It’s not just that these things could happen, it’s that Forest Lake Area Middle School is home to the kind of learner that will one day make them happen.
We believe at the middle school that we exist to create experiences that inspire learning. Every learner should graduate thinking bigger about what he or she can accomplish, believing deeply in his or her ability to create, innovate and collaborate. Our mission is to prepare and empower every student to thrive in and contribute to an ever-changing world. At FLAMS students learn to:
- Respect and see value in oneself and others
- Collaborate effectively
- Ask questions and think critically
- Connect and apply their skills and passions to the real world
- Innovate solutions to complex problems
- See struggle as a stepping stone toward success
Forest Lake Area Middle School is an amazing place filled with wonderful students supported by actively involved families, and a caring staff focused on the work of developing dynamic, creative, and culturally competent students. Middle school is an exciting and challenging time where young people begin to determine who they want to grow into as adults. I am truly honored and excited to serve as your principal and look forward to partnering with families during this exciting time of transition and discovery!
