Carteret Middle School Families,



It is our pleasure to welcome everyone for another great year at Carteret Middle School. We are excitedly preparing our classrooms and hallways so that your children can fill them with their energy and enthusiasm for learning. It is our mission to build a Carteret Middle School community that focuses on assisting every child to feel welcome, connected and an integral part of our Carteret Middle School family as we strive for academic excellence and focus on social and emotional growth.


Carteret Middle School students will gain the skills academically, socially and emotionally to prepare themselves for High School. This year’s programs will focus on growth in Language Arts and Mathematics with our Reader’s Workshop program as well as the implementation of Ready Math in grades sixth through eighth. The Wingman program will train our students to become socially and emotionally prepared for life’s challenges. Our Rising Rambler initiative will enable students to build positive relationships with their peers.


I look forward to spending time with your children, getting to know their personalities, learning styles, and interests. I will celebrate their successes, encourage them to know that they are both valued and have a special place in our school community. My goal is to guide and support both our staff and students to reach their highest potential in a safe and nurturing environment.


Please do not hesitate to contact me with any suggestions or concerns.


Thank you,

Tara Romero


Carteret Middle School
