Principal's Message

Hello Bulldog Family,

 This is my second year serving as the Principal of Gold Hill Middle School. I began my administrative career in 2006 as an Assistant Principal at Gold Hill under the leadership of Tommy Johnston where I served in that role until 2013.  I most recently served as an Assistant Principal at Fort Mill Middle School under the leadership of Greg Norton and Tony Caricari. I have over 25 years of combined experience in education including having worked as a teacher (grades 6-12), curriculum coordinator, and community school-based health educator.  It is my privilege to serve as Principal at Gold Hill Middle School.

 Gold Hill Middle School will be a school where all students LEARN as a result of our teaching talent and the positive human connection that leaves us feeling safe, loved, valued, heard, and respected. #BulldogsLEAD

· Love to learn

· Engage our minds and hearts

· Achieve our goals together

· Do what we say we are (See note below.)

 At GHMS, we pride ourselves on taking a family/collaborative approach to educating our students. Our teaching teams plan together to meet the needs of the students because we believe “they are ALL our students.” We work collaboratively with our Support Staff, Related Arts teachers, Special Services providers and parents to ensure the academic, social, and emotional needs of our students are being met. However, as with all families, we know that sometimes everyone may not see eye to eye. Should you ever have concerns regarding your student, I strongly encourage you to contact the teacher to discuss. Please do not go to your neighbors, friends, or social media to air your grievances or address something that the teacher or staff member has not had an opportunity to discuss directly with you. We teach our students that everyone has a voice and that everyone deserves to be treated with respect, even if you disagree with them. It is the Bulldog Way! This is the same behavior we expect from our parents when dealing with a concern. As principal, my blanket statement is and will always be, the doors of GHMS are open and we want to hear from you. Don’t hesitate to communicate with us. We are a family. We are a team. And, the only way we will be successful and the students will receive the education they deserve is if we work together.

 Let’s all be #differencemakers this year!

 Yours In Education,

Christine V. McNeil
