• Welcome to Morgan Road Middle School!! Home of the Mission Minded Mustangs!!!

    Greetings Mustang Family!!

    I hope you’re having a wonderful summer and that it has been filled with great moments and memories. As many of you know, Dr. Barnes has been promoted to Senior Coordinator for Special Education for Area 1. We know she will continue to work hard and make the best decisions for our students. As a result, I have been appointed the Principal of Morgan Road Middle School, and for that I’m grateful and humble.

    We certainly accomplished a great deal and made some very significant changes. There is so much to be proud of and I truly believe that our accomplishments were made based solely on us working together for one common goal and that is the success of our students. We have an amazing staff and I am grateful for their commitment, courage, and care that they display in so many different ways. I am honored to work with each of them.

    As I think about the upcoming school year, I’m very excited about this next chapter we are about to write. We will continue to enhance our culture of continuous improvement. While we refine the ways we collaborate, make decisions, and solve problems together, we will be putting a strong focus on continuing to build a village with our students, and their parents. We will be establishing some new identities of who we are and what we do as we move forward this year. I believe this will have an enormous positive impact for everyone – especially our students. In this, I share our new mantra: “We are a village raising a nation of scholars.” It is with this belief we will enhance our sense of community and school pride in being a “Mighty Mustang”.

    In partnership with our families and community, we will be striving to create a culture of college and/or work readiness, where everyone is a learner, everyone is a teacher, and everyone is a leader! If we want our children to be college and/or work ready, and if we want them to meet the MRMS expectations of high standards, we must ensure they receive the best possible instruction and commitment to academic improvement. Therefore, we will implement a variety of resources such as open collaboration between teachers and parents, and the use of data to address unique learning styles/gaps. 

    The relationship between parents and teachers, are extremely important in helping to create and maintain a positive and safe school culture and climate. As a village, we must be on the same team in raising our scholars to respect each other and all adults in our community. College and/or work readiness also requires us to teach our children to have excellent character, skills and behavior. We are committed to CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT and we are determined to BE EXCELLENT in our school climate and culture work.

    I look forward to serving as your prinicipal this year.  Let's have a fantastic school year.


    Yours Truly,


    Dr. Johnnie M. Wright, Principal
