    Scott Loughrige

    Welcome to Scullen! I am honored to serve the students, parents, and teachers of Scullen Middle School as principal. My experience includes over fifteen years as a music educator, a school dean, track coach, music therapist and five years as one of Scullen’s assistant principals. Scullen is an amazing school and I look forward to making the middle school experience here a memorable one for all students. 

    At Scullen, we strive to Inspire all students to achieve their greatest potential. As educators, we work with students to develop in academics, but also grit, curiosity, self-control, gratitude, social intelligence, optimism, and zest as character strengths for success.

    Please do not hesitate to contact me if I may be of any assistance to you or your child. As I often say to the students on a daily basis "Work Hard and Be Nice" and GO SHARKS!
