Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Students:

Welcome to Midlothian High School. As your principal, it is my hope that we establish a positive relationship while making your experience at our school academically challenging, memorable, and rewarding. Your years at Midlothian HS will be the foundation of your future academic and personal growth. I encourage all students to take an active part in the academic, cultural, social, athletic, and leadership opportunities available to you.

Our school's website has been prepared to provide a comprehensive guide to the procedures, programs, and activities of our school. I hope you find the website easy to navigate, containing relevant and accurate information. If you do not find the information you are seeking on our school website, please use the search bar in the upper-right corner or simply contact the school at (804) 378-2440.

As a result of our talented and driven students, supportive community members, and dedicated and hardworking faculty, Midlothian High School is a COMMUNITY OF EXCELLENCE. Our students consistently earn highly-competitive scores on SOL, SAT, ACT, AP, and IB assessments, placing Midlothian among the best high schools in the state of Virginia academically. Many Midlothian HS students are also actively involved in high-achieving athletic programs, clubs, and organizations.

The faculty and staff at Midlothian High School will work hard to motivate, support, and promote the success of all our students. It is our goal that every student who enters the doors at Midlothian exit a better person: a young adult who is prepared to enter the workforce with a trade or skill, join the military, or begin college coursework.

I look forward to supporting your contributions to our Community of Excellence here at Midlothian High School.


Mr. Shawn Abel
