Principal’s Message

Welcome to Manteo Middle School, “Where Believing is Achieving.”  Here at MMS, our staff and faculty are committed to provide a nurturing environment in which all students can achieve their highest potential. Our goal is to promote student learning, both academically and socially, while maintaining open communication between home and school.


The faculty and staff will endeavor to challenge and motivate our students to exceed our recent levels of excellence by promoting and instilling a positive work ethic.  The “Manteo Way”; be on time and prepared, give your best effort to achieve and succeed, will allow our faculty, staff, and students to set and achieve personal education goals.  


We seek your cooperation, support and active engagement to continue enabling our students to reach and meet the standards set before them. Manteo Middle School faculty and staff will continue to implement quality programs and place emphasis on the Dare County Schools mission to Educate Every Child.

We welcome you to our  website, one of  our newest tools to further engage our parents and community  to develop the full potential of our young academicians, athletes, musicians, and artists.
