Welcome to Candlewood!
Principal Pamela Higgins
The Candlewood Middle School is a learning community centered on recognizing personal strengths, embracing endless potential, celebrating unique perspectives and abilities, and encouraging creativity and curiosity in all students. Throughout these middle level years, our administration, faculty and staff will be involved in every step on every student’s path towards success. We will strive to foster unity and acceptance as the journey continues through each grade level and each exciting discovery, challenge and victory.
In turn, each student will be encouraged to build their academic and social foundation through dedicated attention to scholastic pursuits coupled with the exploration of music, the arts, technology and language. Our students will have the opportunity to experience extracurricular offerings at the middle level through our clubs, athletics and activities, areas in which we encourage involvement and participation. It is also in these areas that students can begin to take on leadership roles and additional responsibilities, which will serve them well in high school and beyond. During the middle level years, our students will continue to develop their strength of character, answer the call to service, and gain confidence as guided by our school professionals and this Half Hollow Hills community. Together, we will seek to build strong and passionate 21st century learners.
