Principal's Message

Ryan Weiss-Wright, Ed.D. - Principal

Dear McAuliffe Community,

It is with great pride that I welcome you to the 2021-2022 school year at McAuliffe Middle School. McAuliffe has a long history of excellence in academic achievement as well as connecting students to school through activities, athletics, and the arts. Students at McAuliffe benefit from the hard

work and passion of a dedicated team of teachers and support staff. Together, we support the vision of Sharon Christa McAuliffe: “be yourself, try your best, and never be afraid to dream.” 


Additionally, McAuliffe has a renewed focus on mental wellness, inclusion, and equity for all students. We know that the challenges we face resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, combined with today’s social climate, require us to be diligent in our support of students’ mental health. To this end, we have several initiatives targeted at meeting students’ needs in order to ensure their success during their middle school years. It is our goal to create a welcoming space for ALL students that celebrates their diversity and the unique ways they contribute to the McAuliffe community.


I am grateful you’re here! Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.


Stay well,


Ryan Weiss-Wright, Ed.D.
