Principal’s Message

Welcome to Short Pump Middle School!

It is time to Gear Up for Learning! Learning is an intricate process which challenges us to connect current knowledge with new information and form new patterns applied to our lives. It cannot happen with just one or the other. Gears are like learning. They rely on surrounding gears to function just as students depend on others to support their social, emotional, and academic success. Our staff is committed to providing that support and celebrating the progress!

As a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) school in Henrico County, our teachers facilitate lessons challenging students to imagine, create, test, and apply their knowledge to real-life scenarios. Our students experience learning which supports growth in communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity. It is our hope their learning experiences will prepare them for the many adventures awaiting them beyond Short Pump Middle School.

I sincerely believe grades 6, 7, and 8 are the best three years of a student’s school journey. It is an exciting time where students deliberately test and shape their identities and learn to express their authentic selves. Our staff is committed to shaping students into the scholars, athletes, musicians, performers, and leaders they choose to become. We have an extraordinary learning community focused on student development and success. We challenge, collaborate, and celebrate!
