Message from the Principal

Gallup Middle School Parents,

It is my pleasure to announce that I have been named Principal at Gallup Middle School. I have enjoyed serving the Gallup Mid School community for the past two years as the Assistant Principal. It is a true honor to now be able to serve as the head Principal. I have worked in the Gallup McKinley County School District for the past fifteen years in a variety of capacities. These experiences have provided me with a solid foundation of instructional leadership and heightened awareness of the greater GMCS school community. I will utilize my knowledge, skills, and abilities to support Gallup Mid in fulfilling its mission to provide a quality, holistic education that moves all students forward to be responsible, vested community members. This mission is guided by a servant philosophy of positive attitude and acceptance of necessary change to best serve student and stakeholder needs. 

Gallup Middle School will continue to work diligently to provide a high quality education to all students. All courses are designed to support rigorous, critical thinking skills as outlined by the Common Core State Standards. We set high expectations and believe fundamentally that all students can learn and achieve at high levels. Collectively and collaboratively, we will strive to serve individual students’ unique needs.

Effective communication is an essential component of successful schools; therefore I will work with staff to provide pertinent information through various means on a regular basis. Messages will continue to be sent through the Parent Link system and you can also check out our school website and Facebook page for up-to-date information and news.

If you have questions or concerns, please stop in and see me. Your ideas and suggestions are valued, and your active involvement in our school community is appreciated- my door is always open! Please do not hesitate to contact me. I can be reached by email at or by phone at 505-721-2700.

Thank you,

Carrie A. Lovato, Ed. D
