Principal's Message

Greetings Wilder Middle School Families,

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year.  The staff and I are excited to begin the year with a strategic focus on leadership, academics, and culture. Our theme for this school year is “Inspiring Excellence as One School, One Family, and One Community.” As we continue to move our school to the next level of success and begin the Gifted Young Scholars Academy (GYSA), we want to inspire our scholars, staff, families, and community to embrace our diversity, focus on academic success, and model leadership as we work together as One with excellence.

Our school motto will remain "One Team.  One Family.  One Vision.  One Promise." We emphasize the word One because our goal is to bring unity among our scholars, staff, families, and community so that we achieve at the highest level.  Our staff is committed to serving all scholars by providing them with an educational experience focused on deeper learning, understanding of diversity, and encouraging leadership.

As your principal, I am committed to raising the bar at Wilder as we strive towards reaching full accreditation while building a gifted program that will meet the needs of our diverse learners. It is important that we provide all of our scholars with an innovative research based program that will keep our students engaged, inquisitive, and focused.

We look forward to meeting you on fee night which will be held August 30, 2018 from 4-7 p.m. and again at Back to School Night on September 18, 2018 from 6-8 p.m.  At both events you will have the opportunity to join our Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) who are dedicated to the educational success of our scholars. We are looking forward to a great year!


Dr. Deia Champ
