Principal's Corner

Welcome RAMS!

RMS Families,

Welcome to Ramstein Middle School! Being in middle school is a very exciting time in one's life and we are thrilled that your student will be with us for the 2016-17 school year. RMS is a wonderful and vibrant school with a strong connection to the community in support of our students living overseas.

Ramstein Middle School has an excellent reputation for high academic performance. We are one of three schools nominated by the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) as a 2016 Blue Ribbon School. Schools are nominated based on their assessment results in reading and mathematics over the past 5 years. The U.S. Department of Education manages the Blue Ribbon School program. U.S. Secretary of Education, John B. King, Jr will announce the final results in September!

Looking forward, the 2016-17 school year will be filled with excitement and opportunity as we begin to implement the DoDEA College and Career Readiness Standards (CCRS) in math and literacy. By strengthening our educational system with standards, curriculum, instructional framework, and assessment system aligned to the new CCRS we will prepare our students for even greater success and growth. The implementation of these new standards will empower each of our students to succeed in a dynamic world and will ease the transition for our military connection students as they move between DoDEA and stateside schools.

I welcome you to partner with our school. Having a close relationship with parents and the community enhances the school environment and strengthens the educational experience that we offer our students. With your partnership we will prepare your student for the rigors of education, employment, and healthy living.

I look forward to a great year and hope to meet each of you as we begin this new school year.
