Dear Brookside Families,
Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! My name is Emily Adkins and I am very excited to be the 7th-12th grade Principal of Brookside Middle School and Brookside High School this year. I am looking forward to working with the staff in both buildings to support our students with an enriching school experience.
Graduating from Mount Union College, Walsh University, and Ashland University, I have spent two years as a teacher at the elementary level in Lorain and eleven years as a school counselor at the elementary, middle, and high school levels in Lakewood. I began my administrative path as the Assistant Principal of Brookside Intermediate School, followed by two years as the Principal of Brookside Middle School. I feel very honored to have expanded my role in education as a leader for your district.
Middle school is such an important transition for students, both academically and socially. What happens during these years will have a lasting impression on their growth and development. My goal as Principal is to ensure that your children are attending school every day in a safe and caring environment with a challenging academic curriculum to successfully prepare them for their future.
Working together as a school and parent partnership, we can help your children reach their full potential. Please feel free to contact me via email at [email protected] or by phone at (440) 949-4228.
Emily M. Adkins
Principal, Brookside Middle School
