    Principal’s Message


    Dear Parents,

    It is an honor to serve you as the principal of The Martin Weiss School of Leadership. At Martin Weiss, our faculty and staff are focused on nurturing and addressing the needs of the whole child. Instilling positive character traits, preparing our students to become global leaders, and ensuring that our students are prepared to excel academically are our ultimate goals.

    Our faculty and staff are committed to working with you to ensure the success of your child. I whole-heartedly believe that "It takes a village to raise a child." We welcome you to partner with us and to become active participants in your child's education.

    Your child's elementary school years are a special time in his or her life. During this time, children become more independent as they transition from "learning to read' to "reading to learn." As a parent, you are the first teacher of your child, and you play a key role in your child's education. I invite you to participate in open, honest and continuous dialogue with your child's teachers and to form a strong partnership with our school, which will help ensure your child has an exceptional learning experience.

    Thank you in advance for your support, and I look forward to working with your throughout the year.


    Lakisha Merritt
