Dear Tanglewood Middle School Community,
It is truly an honor and privilege to introduce myself as the new principal of Tanglewood Middle School. Tanglewood is an amazing school and community, and I am beyond excited to be the next leader of this amazing school. I hope that our students and their families are enjoying the summer break and preparing for an amazing school year here at Tanglewood, as we are working hard to prepare for their return on Aug 8, 2023.
Prior to being named principal of Tanglewood, I served as the 8th Grade Assistant Principal at Tanglewood during the 2022-2023 school year. With over 12 years of experience in the education field, I arrived at Tanglewood with previous experience as a principal in Greenwood District 50 at the elementary level. With a background in Special Education, it is my mission that each and every student receives the best education possible that best meets their needs.
To our students, please know I am here to support, guide, lead and inspire you to be the very best that you can be. As your principal, I know that all of you are capable of and WILL achieve great things!
To our parents, I am here to work with you to prepare your child to accomplish great things in their next chapter of life. Working together, there is no obstacle or challenge that can prevent us from ensuring your child achieves greatness!
I can't wait to continue this journey with you all, as we are definitely going places at Tanglewood! Don't forget to be great Centurions, because that's exactly what you are!
Mr. Leroy Platt
