Welcome From the Principal

  Michelle Brock-Demps   Principal

Michelle Brock-Demps

It’s a great honor and sincere pleasure to serve as principal of Neely’s Bend Middle School. In 15 years as an educator and administrator, I’ve stayed committed to building student-centered communities focused on teaching, learning and caring.

As we move through conversion to a charter school, I intend to keep Neely’s Bend focused on community, too. We are committed to our mission, and will continue to establish positive, productive relationships with the Neely’s Bend community and develop and implement an academic curriculum that incorporates the specific learning needs of all students.

School Description

Neely’s Bend Middle School offers many opportunities for students to learn, grow and prepare for high school. We offer two high-school credit courses plus the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP), a program that helps students learn how to evaluate information critically.

On a daily basis, our students are taught Literacy, Math, Science and Social Studies. As part of our rotating creative arts program, Creative Writing, Spanish, Choir, Computer, Art and Physical Education are also offered. Students can earn high-school credits for Algebra and Physical Science, and we offer the Encore program for gifted and talented students. Social services are also available for our students as well as before- and after-school tutoring. 

Our knowledgeable faculty and staff are dedicated to our students and parents. As we undergo the conversion process to a charter school, we are collaborating with our sister school, Neely’s Bend College Prep, to ensure a smooth transition.
