Principal's Message


Welcome to West Hempstead Middle School! We strive to create a safe and caring educational environment that meets the academic, emotional, and social needs of our students. Middle School is a very dynamic and exciting time for our young adolescents as they begin to discover the world and themselves as productive members of their school community.

It is with great pride and excitement that I begin my first year as principal. I look forward to building upon the strong foundations of relevance and rigor in creating robust educational experiences for our students both during and after the school day.

The faculty, staff, and administration embody our school’s mission of growth and achievement as cornerstones of academic success for high school and beyond. Our educational program fosters a collaborative community of learners who value excellence and opportunities for every student. It is our goal that all students engage in deeper learning in order to think critically, apply their knowledge to real world situations, communicate purposefully, and embody a growth mindset inside and outside the classroom.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns. We hope you visit our site often throughout the year for updates and events.

      Warmest Regards,

      Dina Reilly
