Welcome to Marc T. Atkinson IB & Gifted Academy Middle School

Jodi SmithDear Atkinson Middle School community,

I am excited to join the Cartwright family as the new principal of Marc T. Atkinson Middle School!

An Oregon native, I come to Arizona with educational experience from kindergarten through adult education. I have an unwavering belief that EVERY student can succeed at Atkinson and have a trajectory for post-high school success! Middle school years are exciting and formative. To achieve success we will focus on systems and events to accelerate student learning, promote a positive school culture and increase parent involvement.

All of our decisions are made in the best interest of our students. In order to ensure academic success, we focus on First Best Instruction. To tend to our students personal and social development, we are utilizing the programs Character Development and Leadership and Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS).

During these unprecedented times, it is more important than ever that we have a strong school-home partnership. I look forward to hearing from parents as well as students on school decisions. Please contact our office with ideas, questions or wonders that you may have.

I look forward to an exciting year ahead!

Go Knights!


Jodi Smith, Principal
Carolyn Wolters, Assistant Principal
Melinda Weible, Assistant Principal
