Principal's Message

  • Welcome to West Annapolis Elementary, home of the Chesapeake Bay Retrievers. Children succeed and thrive in an environment that provides rigorous, challenging experiences in a nurturing atmosphere. The faculty and staff of West Annapolis are committed to helping each child maximize his/her potential. An active PTA and an extensive group of volunteers support and enhance the school program. As the principal of West Annapolis, I look forward to building upon what this tremendous school already has to offer.

    In 1999, West Annapolis was recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School. This standard of excellence continues to be our focus. West Annapolis is one of Maryland’s Green Schools; a school where environmental education is integrated into the school curriculum. Each year all grades participate in one school-wide expedition as a part of the Expeditionary Learning Outward Bound Program. Our learning expeditions support our Green School award.


    In alignment with Anne Arundel County Public Schools, West Annapolis is working towards the Superintendent’s goals of:

    • Academic Achievement
    • Safe and Supportive Learning Environment
    • Community Collaboration
    • Equity


    West Annapolis is truly an exciting place to learn! The faculty and staff along with our parents work together to help students become lifelong learners, stewards of the environment, and independent thinkers engaged in interactive learning experiences through rigorous, relevant instruction. I look forward to working together with you and your children as we strive for academic success for all students!
