    Dear Sylvan Hills Middle School Family:
    Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  It is a privilege and honor to serve as a leader at Sylvan.  I am truly excited to meet each new parent/guardian and to see the familiar faces from last year.  The staff and I are committed to partnering with you to ensure your child reaches his/her potential in a respectful, motivating and challenging setting.  

    The administrative team, faculty, and staff at Sylvan are prepared to provide all students with a quality educational experience that will prepare them for success beyond the walls of our school.  Our rich and rigorous curriculum will continuously challenge and equip students with higher level thinking skills to be successful throughout middle and high school.  During the year, students will engage in activities that will require them to research, investigate, explore, analyze, create and apply.  In addition to rigorous academics, students will also participate in advisory, clubs, field trips, various after school programs, and other learning experiences outside the classroom.  We remain committed to providing a school experience that teaches the whole child, academically, socially, and emotionally.

    We are dedicated to having all members of our community “Be Sylvan Ready” every dayIn order to “Be Sylvan Ready,” students and staff must be:

    ü Respectful

    ü Punctual and Prepared

    ü Presentable (we are a uniform school so uniforms are required daily)

    ü Actively Engaged


    Yours in Education,

    Principal Portee
