About Myers Middle School

The school is named after abolitionists Stephen and Harriet Myers, who lived in Albany from the 1830s through the 1850s. The Myerses played an important role in helping hundreds of African-Americans gain freedom in the Albany area via the Underground Railroad. Click here to learn more.


Constructed in 2005 through the City School District of Albany’s facilities project, Myers Middle School is a modern three-story, 140,000-square foot facility. The school contains 24 general-education classrooms, six special-education classrooms, six science rooms with prep space, cutting-edge technology classrooms, modern family and consumer science classrooms, two art classrooms with kiln and storage and music, choral and band room.


New assistant principal joins Myers team

John C. Powell, an experienced administrator and teacher, is a new assistant principal at Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School.


Powell spent the last 16 years in the Stillwater Central School District. He began his career there as an elementary school teacher in 2002 and five years later became an assistant principal, serving in the district's elementary, middle and high schools. He served as principal at Stillwater Elementary School until recently. While a principal, his building and the district in general saw impressive gains in student performance on state exams that measure proficiency in English and math skills. Before his work in Stillwater, he taught special education in South Glens Falls and at the Wildwood School in Latham.


He is certified as a school building leader, a special education teacher and an elementary teacher. His first day at Myers was Nov. 28.
