Principal's Message

Dear Crocker Families,

The pursuit of a good education is very much like the pursuit of any other sound investment: it requires persistence, perseverance, hard work, a willingness to assume an appropriate level of risk, and the courage to believe in one’s convictions, especially in uncertain times.

At Crocker Middle School, we wish to support each student’s goals and objectives in a safe environment where all students can develop the strengths and talents unique to them as individuals. We wish to foster a climate where respect for the process of learning is upheld by honoring the diversity of learning styles present in our students. Our ability to promote academic excellence ultimately relies upon our commitment to meet the needs of each learner, regardless of his or her level of proficiency.

We hope as our students learn and grow during their middle school years, they take full advantage of the available opportunities at Crocker. As they mature, they will come to realize all the academic, social, and personal benefits they have attained through their sound investment in themselves.


Jamie Adams, Ed.D.

More than two decades of research findings are unequivocal: the most important aspect of a school in terms of student learning is teacher quality, and our teachers are among the best!

Students in K-2 have access to a reading specialist. 3rd-5th grade students participate in our Innovation Labs where they create and explore. K-5 students participate in music classes, and 4th-8th grade students have access to instrument instruction. Spanish instruction begins in 4th grade, and Mandarin is offered in our middle school. All of our schools have a dedicated counselor, teacher librarian, physical educator, and more!

Through the generosity of donors, the Hillsborough Schools Foundation pledged $3.5 million to our schools for this school year. Last year's Fund-A-Need raised funds for traffic and safety. Thank you!
