Principal's Message

At Glade Spring Middle School, we focus on fulfilling the needs of every child every day.  Our charge is to meet the individual social, emotional, intellectual, and physical needs of each student.  To accomplish this, we approach each student as an individual and collaborate as a team to provide a positive learning environment.  Each day brings an opportunity for positive growth within our students.
