Our Principal

Dear Panther Students, Parents, and Guardians,

I am thrilled to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to each and every member of our esteemed high school community! As the Principal of Midlothian High School, it is with great pride and excitement that I embark on this incredible journey alongside all of you.

At Midlothian High School, we are not just a school; we are a family, a tightly-knit community of dedicated educators and support staff, ambitious students, and supportive parents. Our collective commitment to academic excellence, personal growth, and mutual respect sets the stage for a truly enriching and transformative high school experience for everyone in the MHS family.

As I step into this role, I bring with me 14 years of invaluable experience within the Midlothian Independent School District (MISD). My passion for education and my unwavering belief in the potential of every student drive me to create an inclusive and nurturing environment that fosters intellectual curiosity, creativity, and a lifelong love of learning.

Our mission at Midlothian High School is not only to prepare students for the challenges of higher education and the professional world, but also to equip them with the essential life skills that will enable them to thrive in an ever-changing global landscape. We believe in empowering our students to become critical thinkers, compassionate leaders, and responsible citizens who make positive contributions to society.

With a dedicated team of educators and a comprehensive range of extracurricular activities, we are committed to providing a holistic education that nurtures the intellectual, social, and emotional growth of each student.  Furthermore, we place immense value on open communication and collaboration between school and home. Parents and guardians are essential partners in the education of our students, and we encourage you to actively participate in your child's educational journey.

Throughout the academic year, we will celebrate our students' achievements, encourage their perseverance, and support them in times of challenge. We will foster a culture of respect, empathy, and kindness, where every member of our school community feels safe, valued, and empowered to grow and learn.

I am incredibly excited to serve as your Principal and I look forward to getting to know each of you personally as we work together to make Midlothian High School an exceptional center of learning and personal growth. Let us create lasting memories and forge lifelong friendships as we embrace the opportunities and adventures that await us.

Thank you for entrusting us with the education of your children. Together, we will inspire greatness and shape a brighter future.

Warmest regards,

Dr. Amanda Rodgers
Principal, Midlothian High School
