Principal's Message

Hello HMS Families!
It is an honor and privilege to be your principal for the fifth year. In 1998, I was part of the first 8th grade class in the newly established HMS.  My teachers inspired me to be an educator as well as walk in confidence academically and socially.  I know firsthand the impact middle school years can have on a student. I look forward to supporting your child academically, socially, and creatively.  Our administrative team has high expectations for our students, parents, faculty, and staff. Together we will create a culture of respect, safety, and celebration. All children belong here and have something positive to contribute to our HMS community.  It is an honor to be a part of this community and your family’s journey.  We are in your corner! Let’s rock this year!
Dr. Audra Fowler, Principal
I am so excited to be at Harpeth Middle School this year!  Harpeth is a wonderful community and practices rich traditions that cultivate pride in our school.  The staff are committed to excellence and dedicated to helping students succeed.  I am eager for all us at HMS to grow, learn, and be the best versions of ourselves!
