Message from the Principal

Welcome to Murchison Middle School, an International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme. Our mission is to inspire life-long learning, college and career readiness, and global citizenship while fostering social responsibility and personal well-being. Please welcome our Interim Principal, Beth Newton.

Dear Murchison Middle School Community, 

I am so honored to have been named the Interim Principal of Murchison Middle School for the remainder of the school year. As our community moves forward after processing this change in leadership, I want to assure you that I am here to listen to your thoughts and concerns/ideas on how to best support our students academically and emotionally. Please know that I have an open door policy and am looking forward to meeting everyone within our community soon. 

A little about me... for the past ten years I have served as the Principal of Hill Elementary School, while also serving as the Anderson Vertical Team Lead. It has been my joy to work within the Anderson Vertical Team and lead our community forward. Prior to Hill, I served as the Principal of Pease Elementary School for four years, and was Assistant Principal at Menchaca Elementary School for four years as well. Also, my children are products of our schools and enjoy attending Anderson High School. 

I am excited to grow my experience within the Anderson Vertical Team by leading Murchison Middle School. I am looking forward to meeting our students and collaborating with staff. Thank you for your patience and support during this time, and I am looking forward to learning more about all of the great things happening at Murchison Middle School soon!
