Mr. Prince Principal's Introduction and Welcome Letter
Dear Mount Vernon Middle School Families,

My name is Darin Prince and I am so excited to introduce myself as the new principal of Mount Vernon Middle School. I am honored to have been selected to join the Mount Vernon School District, which is known for both its dedication to excellence in education and the children of our great community. I have been proud to call Mount Vernon my home for the last 6 years. It is here that I started my family with my amazing and supportive wife Amanda. We have been blessed with two wonderful children in Cohen (3) and Adalynn (1), who will one day be wearing orange and black as they become Yellow Jackets. I am invested in the education and development of our community because our kids deserve the best.

My passion for middle school education and the success for all students has been shaped over the past 9 years as a science teacher, math teacher, and assistant principal in Cincinnati and Central Ohio. My commitment to serve others and strive for excellence stems from 14 years experience as a Soldier and officer in the Ohio Army National Guard. It is my personal mission to combine this passion and commitment to best serve the Mount Vernon Community as your Middle School Principal.

It is my philosophy that great education at the middle school level is rooted in the development of relationships and providing engaging educational experiences that support all students within the classroom. I will spend a lot of time with your children, getting to know their personalities, learning styles and interests. This will allow me to partner with teachers to personalize instruction within our classrooms to meet your student’s needs and get them excited about learning. My goal is to have students running home to share their experiences from their school day with you at the dinner table.

Not only am I excited to begin working with your children, but also look forward to the work we will do together. As the old Proverb states, “It takes a village to raise a child.” I am excited to see your children through your eyes. I cannot wait to share with you the great things they do throughout their days here at our school. And of course I will be here to work with you should they need any help navigating any aspect of life as a middle school student.

Once again, I am thankful for the opportunity to “Inspire and Empower” your student to excel both academically and socially as the Mount Vernon Middle School Principal. I look forward to getting to know you and your children.

Best regards,

Darin Prince

Middle School Principal
