    Principal's Message







    Dear Parents and Families,

    We are pleased that you have taken the time to visit the Alcorn Middle School website. After you visit, we hope that you will have a good idea of what we have to offer.

    Alcorn Middle School promotes high standards and expectations for each student in regard to academic performance and responsible citizenship during the school day and after school hours. It is the contribution of our students to our school community that makes Alcorn Middle School remarkable. We encourage participation in academic programs, fine arts, athletics, and community service along with a willingness to act responsibly as an individual to promote a positive academic environment.

    Our entire staff is dedicated to continuous professional development and use of student achievement data to drive instructional decisions. Collaboration time is utilized to create engaging lessons, assessments, and analyze data to identify researched based teaching strategies that are proven as best practices. We are committed to academic excellence. We are hard at working preparing students for the new state assessment, SC READY and SC PASS in the Spring!

    We strongly believe that parent and community involvement are an essential piece to the success of a school. Parents are always encouraged to visit our school and become involved with their child’s education. At Alcorn, there are many opportunities to embrace or support student learning. There are many ways you can be a part of our school:

    • Volunteer in school 
    • Attend Fall and Spring Parent/Teacher Conferences 
    • Check daily academic progress in PowerSchool
    • Maintain open communication with parents and school 
    • Plan community service projects and service learning.

    We will continue to “Shift the Atmosphere toward Academic Excellence.” To parents, students and all who visit our website, we hope it provides you with all of the information that you need. Please contact us if you need any other information on our school!

    Go Knights!

    Dr. Antwon M. Sutton
    Principal
