Principal at Heskett

Greetings Heskett Middle School Parents/Guardians and Students!


Welcome to Heskett Middle School!  I want to personally welcome our new seventh grade students, our returning eighth grade students, and any students who are new to the Bedford City School District.  The middle school experience is very important as it meets the essential educational, emotional and social needs of all adolescent students.  I am confident that all of our students will find much success during their years at Heskett Middle School.


The Heskett staff and I are eager to begin the new school year.  We look forward to working with your family as we embark on an educational journey that will be both challenging and rewarding.  The middle school years serve as a bridge to young adulthood.  The staff is committed to providing our students with an excellent education, along with many opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities.  To make sure we are meeting the needs of all of our students at Heskett Middle School, we have created a block schedule that will allow extended class time to teach all four core subjects:  language arts, math, social studies and science.  Academic Content Standards for these four core subject areas will be utilized in all of our seventh and eighth grade classrooms throughout the school year.  Students will be expected to read and learn more information using a much more rigorous and comprehensive curriculum that will prepare them to compete in the global market. The state of Ohio is raising the standard for all of our students and so are we here at Heskett Middle School to make sure they are career and college ready.


It is important that the home and school work together to foster a positive learning environment that enhances the educational, social, and emotional development that we provide our students.  Parents/Guardians, I invite you to take an active role in your child’s middle school experience.  Please be sure to participate in the many school events that take place throughout the school year at Heskett, including our Academic Awards, Parent-Teacher Conferences and attending extracurricular activities.  I encourage you to join the Heskett PTSA and to volunteer your time to assist in any way that you are able.    Please contact our school office for more information.


We at Heskett Middle School look forward to working with you and your family.  We are honored to be your partner in the education of your children.  If you should have any questions, please feel free to send us an e-mail or call us at (440) 439-4450.


Best wishes for a rewarding school year!

Virginia A. Golden
