Dear Students, Staff and Parents:

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! I am honored to serve as principal of N. H. Pilate Middle School. Our commitment at N. H. Pilate Middle School is to provide a safe and intellectually challenging environment that will empower students to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers, and inspired learners prepared to thrive in the twenty-first century.

High standards and expectations for each student regarding academic performance, co-curricular participation, and responsible citizenship are the foundation of our school this year. It is with pride that we (the staff) hold these high standards and ask each of our students to commit to maintaining these standards to achieve an extraordinary record of achievement.

I am privileged to lead such an outstanding school community and, I look forward to what I know will be both a rewarding and successful year. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions, concerns, or input at any time.

Proud to be an Tiger!

Dr. Sharon Hoye, Principal
