Principal's Message

Albemarle Middle Families,


I’m excited to begin my first FULL year as principal at Albemarle Middle. We have worked hard all summer to rejuvenate our building. If you visit, you will notice we have cleaned up the outside and made it more inviting. We have also redecorated the inside. It’s our goal to ensure that our school is inviting for our families.


Our staff at AMS work hard each day to ensure that our students get the instruction that they deserve. We did not have test scores this past year due to the pandemic, but I can promise that if we did, we would have shined as we did the year before! If you didn’t know, AMS growth for students was in the top 20% of the state for the 2018-2019 school year! When our students shine, that is our biggest celebration!


We know that the 2020-2021 school year is unique and very different than any other year we have encountered. We encourage you to work with your children at home and stay on top of them by ensuring they are completing their school work each day. Working together this year will make all the difference! Please don’t hesitate to contact me for any reason! My office extension is 704-961-3401.


Here’s to a great year ahead!


Mr. Jonassen
