Principal's Message

Dear Wells Community,

I am humbled and honored to have the opportunity to serve the Ida B. Wells community as its founding principal. Throughout my experience as a teacher, coach, and leader, I have deeply believed that our role as educators is not only to prepare our scholars for the academic rigor of college and beyond but also to develop citizenship and leadership skills that empower our scholars to be agents of change for their community and our world.

Prior to joining the Ida B. Wells MS family, I served the West Education Campus community as principal for almost 4 years, where in school years 16-17 and 18-19, we doubled the citywide average in growth on PARCC scores in both ELA and math and increased student satisfaction from 78 percent to 95 percent over the course of 3 years. At the end of SY 18-19, the middle school at West moved from 3 stars to 5 stars on the Star Framework for DC Public and Public Charter Schools.

Before I moved to DC, I served as the founding principal of Uplift Mighty, a public charter school in Texas. At Uplift Mighty, our scholar growth outpaced national growth on our normative interim assessments and we fostered a joyful and achievement-focused scholar culture. I earned my bachelor’s degree from Texas Christian University and a master’s in education from Arizona State University. Recently, I was one of 20 DCPS and charter school principals who graduated with an Executive Master’s in Leadership at the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University. In addition to the work I love at Ida B. Wells MS, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, baking, crafting and traveling.

All My Best,
Megan Vroman
