Mr. Justin Avery, Assistant Principal

Welcome to OVMS!


Dear Orchard Valley Middle School Community (OVMS),

It is my utmost pleasure and humble responsibility to serve the Orchard Valley Middle School learning community as the new Assistant Principal. I am very excited to be a new member of OVMS Panthers and pledge to support the school mission by providing the highest level of care for the academic and social emotional development of OVMS students. With over 15 years of educational experience, I bring with me a diverse background that is characterized by hands-on intentional, constructive leadership and engagement. I look to continue my life’s mission to serve here at OVMS and within the Washington Township Public School community.

Much of my experience, that I plan to execute here at OVMS, has been centered on improving instruction to utilize best practices in education such as differentiated instruction, restorative practice, and the analysis of data to drive instruction. Facilitating the development and implementation of those three strategies equips instructors with a collection of instructional tools and strategies to address various learning styles in the classroom. As I learn the OVMS way, I will contribute to the highest level of my ability to ensure that students, families, and educators are supported and the mission of OVMS is fulfilled on a daily basis.

As we navigate through the ups and downs of modern times, please feel free to communicate with me about your concerns regarding our school and please know I am here to support you.
