Welcome to MacFarland Middle School!

Principal Sanders As we start this second year of the new MacFarland Middle School, I want to thank you all for your support and trust that you have instilled in the MacFarland Team by choosing to send your middle school student to MacFarland. My goal remains to build up MacFarland and put it on the path to becoming the premier middle school in the District.

I look forward to working with the parents and community members through the expansion of this year, as well as next year and the years beyond. That expansion will include the opening of a newly renovated building in August of 2018. I hope that you will connect with the school during our school activities and our monthly meetings. In the meantime, if you have any questions, or would like to discuss a specific issue with me, please reach out to me at 202-671-6033 or at mark.sanders@dc.gov.  Thank you and Go Mustangs!

 Sincerely,
 Mark Sanders, Principal

Bienvenidos a la Escuela Intermedia MacFarland

Al comenzar este segundo año de la Escuela Intermedia MacFarland, quiero agradecerles por el apoyo y la confianza que le han proporcionado al Equipo de MacFarland al escoger nuestra escuela para enviar a sus estudiantes de escuela intermedia. Mi objetivo continúa siendo el desarrollo de MacFarland y colocarla en el camino para que llegue a ser la escuela intermedia más sobresaliente del Distrito.

Espero trabajar con los padres y miembros de la comunidad a través de este año escolar, así como el próximo año y los años venideros. Esa expansión incluirá la apertura de un edificio recientemente renovado en el mes de agosto del 2018. Espero que usted se comunique con la escuela durante nuestras actividades y reuniones mensuales. Mientras tanto, si tiene preguntas, o quiere conversar sobre un tema en específico, comuníquese conmigo al 202-671-6033 o a mark.sanders@dc.gov. ¡Gracias y arriba Mustangs!

Sinceramente,
Mark Sanders, Director

Modernization Update

MacFarland Middle School reopened in August 2016 as a dual-language middle school. In the fall, we will continue to grow our Dual-Language program and welcome our first 6th grade comprehensive (non-dual language) class.  We will welcome this class in a newly modernized and renovated state of the art building. 

We will grow our comprehensive middle school program over the next three school years starting with 6th graders and become a full 6 – 8th grade middle school in School Year 2020-2021. As our program grows, Truesdell EC, Raymond EC, and West EC will phase out their middle grades.
