Principal's Message

 Welcome HMS students and families,


What a time to be a middle school student! A historic beginning is upon us we enter into a virtual academy school year. Whether virtual or on campus, the entire staff at Henry E. Huntington Middle School, extends a warm welcome to all new and returning students.


These unprecedented times have challenged all of us. In light of these hurdles and constant change confronting us each day, Huntington Middle School teachers, staff, and students will move forward with our virtual academy. HMS is ready to thrive and press on towards the goal of continued excellence in education. Will this be perfect?  No, but with our best efforts, collaboration, communication, and positive attitudes put forth, excellence will be surpassed resulting in unique and engaging educational opportunities for our students. HMS is composed of experienced, strong, dynamic, and positive staff, ready to pivot into our virtual academy beginning on August 12. Students and families of HMS will get oriented with teachers and staff  the first week of school. We are ready. 


As principal of Huntington Middle School our teachers and staff are proactive in moving forward together. The HMS tradition of inspiring students to gain a deeper understanding of content and learning how to apply it will continue with rigor and excellence. 


Join us as we move forward into the 2020-2021 school year.   


Sempre Avanti,

Principal T
