Principal's Message

Welcome to Arden Middle School,

I hope that your student can take advantage of all the wonderful activities and events that Arden has to offer. Arden has a long history of success with our athletics such as track and field, wrestling, and cross country. We typically offer around 20 special interest clubs at lunch such as Chess Club, Black Student Union, Board Game Club, and Anime Club. We also offer dances, skate nights, rallies, and PTA sponsored events.

Arden offers student selected honors classes in English, History and Science. Accelerated Math courses in 7th and 8th grade are based on data, grades, and teacher recommendations. We offer a variety of electives that include band, choir, art, computers, AVID and Spanish.

At Arden Middle School, we are committed to partnering with our families and community to support student learning. There are many opportunities to get involved on our campus including through our PTA, School Site Council, and chaperoning dances. I am excited to continue many traditions and events that bring family and student engagement.

If you have not already done so, please consider following us on social media (Facebook and Instagram). Join the Arden PTA to receive updates and announcements. I will also email a weekly Monday newsletter with important information, updates, and upcoming events.

As your principal, please know that I am dedicated to ensuring that all families and students feel welcome and safe at Arden. My door is always open if you have concerns or questions. I can be reached at 916-971-7306 or

Go Panthers!

Ms. Cummings
