Principal Message

Welcome From the Principal

As the school principal, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Ida B. Wells Elementary School, where our motto is: "Inspiring Excellence Beyond the World's Measure." Our dedicated staff works hard to meet the individual needs of all students and maintain personal connections with their families.

We invite you to become an active participant in our school community through volunteering and attending and supporting school events. Research supports that when parents and guardians participate and are involved in their child's education, there is a greater likelihood of academic success for the child.

Together, we will continue to improve the quality of our school community and provide the best for the children of Ida B. Wells. Education is a partnership between the school, students, parents and guardians and the community. All children are more successful when we work as a team to achieve educational goals.

We love having the building full students and all of the energy they bring. If you are in the building, please stop by my office for a visit!

Dexter Adams, Principal
