Dr. Jeryl Scott

Greetings Students and Families,

My name is Jeryl Scott and I was appointed the Principal of Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School effective July 1, 2016. I am a lifelong educator with over 25 years of educational experiences. Prior to arriving at MLK, I was the Principal at the RPS Aspire Academy. I have also worked for over ten years in various capacities with Hampton City Schools and over fifteen years in New York. 

As a career educator, I have been actively involved in the lives of students on the Elementary, Middle, and High School Levels. Not only has education been my passion, I have coached, tutored, and directed many programs. 

I believe that all of my experiences within the school and within the community have led me to be an effective leader that understand the multifaceted and wholistic views of students and parents alike. 

Therefore, I do not take my appointment lightly. It is my goal to work collaboratively with all students, teachers, parents and community stakeholders in order to change the priority status of our school. I embrace the opportunity to work with each and every one of you and I believe with your assistance, community partnerships, and open communication we will be able to provide students with an educational environment that is reflective of educational quality.
