Principal's Message

Welcome to Connolly Middle School.

Connolly is proud to offer a challenging and enriching curriculum for your child. Connolly’s faculty and staff strive to create an environment where a shared commitment to learning, critical thinking, cooperation, tolerance, and self-discipline will enable students to become lifelong learners and responsible citizens.

Connolly Middle School offers a unique educational experience because of the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program. We are proud to be an AVID National Demonstration Site. AVID’s proven methodologies implemented throughout each subject increase rigor and promote academic achievement for general, gifted, and special education students.

Connolly’s west campus is home to ASPIRE Academy, which is designed for the most academically gifted middle school students. In addition, the music programs at Connolly have a long tradition of excellence.

We are committed to all students’ success. Please visit our school and see why our school motto is “Whatever It Takes, we are college bound!”
