Bessie Coleman Middle School

The staff and scholars of Bessie Coleman believe that anything is possible through collaboration, rigor, relevance, and relationships.  We are committed to becoming a national premier middle school by providing an excellent, effort-based education for all scholars.

Our values are based on the Six Pillars of Character.  "Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship shape WHO we are, WHAT we do, and HOW we educate our scholars."

Meet our Principal!

My name is Dwight A. Perry Jr. and I am excited to be here.  I'm a dynamic visionary and servant leader.  Currently, I'm serving as the proud Principal at Bessie Coleman Middle School in Cedar Hill.  
3 of my core values (Perry's ABCs) are accountability, belief, and continuous improvement. I'm a former high school math teacher, football, wrestling, and girls' soccer coach.  

We are ELATED about this school year and looking forward to winning every day. Thanks for trusting your scholar with us.

Math Always!
