Meet the Principal - Shelly R. Vroegh

  • IMAGE: Shelly R. Vroegh It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new Principal of Tortolita Middle School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of education! I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than twenty eight years, and I look forward to getting to know this wonderful community and individual students. I am excited and eager to bring my skills as an educational leader to TMS and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success.


    At Tortolita, we want to continue to have high expectations for our students, while building positive relationships along the way. This year is going to be amazing as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections. As your principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors - teachers, students and parents - are excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment. 


    Tortolita Middle School offers a variety of programs including: fine arts, athletics, and Code to the Future programs. We have gifted and special education classes and offer various electives to fit the needs of every student.


    We are committed to helping all students have a successful transition, both from elementary to middle, and from middle to high school. Our teachers strive to build positive relationships with students, while creating a classroom where students are challenged academically.


    Throughout this school year, I want you to know my door is always open and I welcome your input and feedback. I truly believe we are partners in your child’s education so please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you may have. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year.
