About our school

Principal Michael Paolino posing for a picture with a student.Believing that all young people can learn, Hackett Middle School seeks to ensure maximum academic success for its students. 

To accomplish this, the school eases the transition from childhood to adulthood in a safe and nurturing environment. Its goal is to enable every student to achieve academically, socially, culturally and physically, to the best of their ability. 

By offering a diverse array of curricular and extracurricular activities, we hope to foster the self-worth of each child by increasing awareness for individual differences and respect for others.  

Our school also prides itself on our strong, supportive partnership with our PTA. 

Through the establishment of high learning expectations and a strong community, it is our goal to provide all students with the skills and knowledge base to become life-long learners.
