Principal’s Message

Hello, John Rolfe Family! 


Introducing myself as the incoming principal of John Rolfe Middle School is a tremendous honor. I am excited to have the privilege of joining this vibrant community!  We welcome Ms. Alison Walden, associate principal, and the returning Mr. Silvanus Thrower and Mrs. Antravias Burt.  The opportunity to serve our community is one we hold in deep esteem.  The entire JRMS faculty is eager to meet or reconnect with our students. 


Our team and building have undergone some changes since June of 2022.  We invite you to get reacquainted with both in a number of ways.  Our “new look” community engagement opportunities and multiple streams of communication are our keys to sharing the wonderful things happening at Rolfe.  One idea that remains the same is our shared goal of providing an optimal educational experience for our students.  We’ve planned a fun school year that launches from a point of community, connectedness, and safety.


Our philosophy of leadership is deeply rooted in equity, excellence, trust, and accountability. I am eager to further familiarize myself with the John Rolfe community values and work to build a shared vision for the future.  Let’s work together to create a meaningful experience for our students.


Hope always matters!



Mr. Darryl L. Johnson

Proud Principal

John Rolfe Middle School
