Danielle Brandt - Principal
Welcome to Lewis & Clark! It is an honor and a privilege to serve as the Principal of Lewis & Clark Middle School, the proud home of the Trailblazers! Lewis & Clark is an International Baccalaureate MYP World School, and we believe in the power of teamwork and a collective focus on student growth and achievement. Here at Lewis & Clark, we rally around the motto of “We Not Me,” and as principal, I am committed to supporting our students and staff and engaging our families and community to create a collective team dedicated to our students.
It is a joy to lead and walk alongside a staff of devoted and skilled educators as we create a school community that inspires students to become the best versions of themselves as we continue the Lewis & Clark Tradition of Excellence. Go Blazers!
