Dear Edgewood Middle School Community,

Welcome back Cougars! I hope the summer has given you the opportunity to refresh and renew. As the principal of Edgewood Middle School, I am honored and privileged to serve this community.  I am eager to work with the students, staff, parents and community to build positive relationships that support the social, emotional and academic growth of our students.

The mission of Edgewood City Schools, the unifying force throughout our community, is to ensure all students succeed as lifelong learners and productive citizens, through challenging and meaningful learning opportunities distinguished by:

  • A dedicated team of students, staff, parents and community
  • A safe, well-maintained learning environment
  • A climate of innovation

All students, staff, and parents are important contributors to the climate of our school community. I encourage you to take an active role in your child’s academic, social and emotional well-being. The middle school years are challenging. The students are trying to figure out who they are and where they fit in the world. 

We are committed to strengthening the collaboration between Edgewood Middle School and the families of every student that walks through these doors. Every student has gifts and talents. We hope they discover and develop those during their time at EMS. 


Jim Dallio
