Principal’s Message

Welcome to Garyville Mt. Airy Math & Science Magnet School where we strive to cultivate a learning experience that is engaging and fun! I feel extremely fortunate and blessed to be the principal of a school that is embarking on a “Journey to Excellence” with wonderful students and a dedicated staff that is ready to build our students’ capacity. GMMS success is a direct result of the relationships we develop by promoting excellence, integrity, respect, and a culture for our terrific school and incredible students.
This year our expectations are set high, and success is ours to achieve. Our mission at GMMS is to encourage leadership and academic excellence by connecting people, purpose, and practice. We feel strongly that teaching Tier 1 curriculum will provide a strong foundation for exceptional learning. This along with the support of our families and community makes Garyville Mt. Airy Math & Science Magnet School an amazing place to learn and work.
A crucial part of success for our students is attendance As a parent or a guardian it is essential for you to maintain an attitude that “Every Day Counts” for students to be in school and ready to learn each day. At GMMS, we will assist in helping our parents and students understand the importance of instructional time and student attendance. We also understand that family and the support of our community are the foundation of our success. Parents and guardians play the most important role in a student’s success. Please join us in cultivating an attitude of excellence in every student while promoting academic changes that will influence achievement.
Excellence is a habit at GMMS and I am honored to be a part of the Timberwolves family! Let’s have a Terrific year!!
