Principal's Message

Welcome to College Park Middle School!

As your new principal, I am thrilled to embark on this journey of learning and growth alongside our incredible students, dedicated parents, and supportive community. I bring to CPMS over 17 years of educational experience that includes 6 years as an Assistant Principal and three years as an Administrator over discipline at the district level.

I believe in the power of education to transform lives. Our mission is to create a nurturing environment where every student feels valued, inspired, and empowered to reach their full potential. Together, we will foster a love for learning, encouraging curiosity and critical thinking. At CPMS, we aim to cultivate well-rounded individuals who excel academically, socially, and emotionally. Through a diverse range of extracurricular activities and a strong emphasis on character development, we will guide our students in becoming responsible, compassionate, and respectful citizens. Parental involvement is essential for the success of our students. I encourage all parents to actively engage with the school, supporting and complementing the learning experience at home.

Together, let's create a positive and inclusive learning community where students can thrive and explore their passions. I am committed to ensuring your child’s middle school experience is one they will remember for the rest of their lives. Together, let us make College Park Middle School a place of inspiration, growth, and achievement.

Be a Leader
BE Fearless
BE the Change

Thank you,

Mr. Derrick Fontaine, Principal
College Park Middle School
