Principal's Message

Dear Prince Parents and Guardians,
I am excited to be part of this well-established community and I am looking forward to building relationships with each of you.  I have been with AMS as the principal of MASSA for the last 7 years. It is with great pleasure that I announce my new role as the Executive Principal for the Tucson Region (MASSA and Prince).  As the Executive Principal I will be overseeing both campuses as I work closely with our dedicated staff, students, and families. I am committed to upholding our school’s mission by providing the best education within the best leaning environment for every student. With a total of 10 years of experience in educational leadership, and with the support of our Prince team, we will lead our school community towards continued success.  
Joining me in this leadership endeavor is Ms. Kimberly Crandall, who will be assuming the role of Resident Principal. Ms. Kim served the MASSA community as an ELA teacher before being promoted to administration. Ms. Kim is a highly qualified and experienced educator who has been an integral part of our school community for six years. Her passion for education, dedication to student success, and strong interpersonal skills make her an ideal fit for this role. I am confident that Ms. Kim will contribute greatly to the growth and development of our students and the overall success of our school.
As an Executive Principal-Resident Principal team, Ms. Kim and I will work closely together to ensure the smooth functioning of our school, support teachers and staff, and provide a nurturing and engaging learning environment for our students. We will collaborate closely with our exceptional teaching staff to promote academic excellence, implement innovative instructional practices, and foster a positive and inclusive school culture.
We look forward to a fantastic school year filled with growth, achievement, and memorable experiences for our students. Thank you for being an essential part of our school community.
Warm regards,
Norma Derby - Principal
