My name is Gary Massey and it is my privilege to serve as the principal here at Shoal River Middle School.  It is my goal to serve my students, parents, employees and community to the best of my ability while leveraging the resources available to also make everyone’s time on campus enjoyable.  Smiles are always free here at Shoal River Middle School!


The faculty and staff hope your child’s experience here is positive and full of growth.  Many doors open for our Mustangs when they embrace their membership to this very special team.  The research is clear that students participating in sports, music, or clubs are more academically and socially successful.  We encourage our parents to push students to engage in their education through the many opportunities we have available at our school.  This is a special school full of highly motivated, dedicated and compassionate educators and students.


The Shoal River Middle School Priorities: Students, Parents and Colleagues and then everything else.  As always, do not hesitate to call should you ever need me or any member of our Mustang Team.
