Principal Whitfield

Wildcat Parents and Students,

Together with our faculty, staff, and Assistant Principal Dr. Smalls, it gives me great
pleasure to welcome all our returning and new students to the 2023-2024 school year! We are excited to see the smiling faces of our returning and new students. This year, we look forward to continuing to celebrate as a 2022 National Blue Ribbon School as new and exciting adventures await you while you experience innovative ways to learn the curriculum standards, make new friends, and enjoy all your teachers offer.
As the proud principal of Fairfield Magnet School for Math and Science, one of the best schools in the nation, I am confident that all our students will rise to the expectations they will encounter in their classroom. Parents, let’s begin the year functioning as a team for your students by joining together to set high expectations for challenging and engaging instruction, strong and regular communication from teachers and the school, and, most importantly, high expectations for what your child can achieve this year.

Our professional goals are to embrace our theme of “TWIST-Together Wildcats Inspire Students and Teachers” with the continuation of our efforts to use data from common assessments, formative assessments, and state assessments to drive instruction at each grade level to meet all students at their point of need and challenge students to reach their goals potential.
Research indicates that for our students to succeed academically, children need support from home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will significantly impact your child’s education. I ask for your help and participation every day, encouraging them to read for pleasure for at least 30 minutes every night, monitoring homework and progress, and asking your child to share what they learned at school each day.
“There is a brilliant child locked inside every student.” ~ Marva Collins
