Welcome!!!! I am fortunate to be the principal of this GREAT school. I have been in education for 29 years and with CMS for 23 years. I have served in numerous roles during this time and have had the unique opportunity to open two new schools within CMS as principal. One of the highlights of my career was to open Merancas Middle College High School in the fall of 2017 and Ridge Road Middle School in 2009. I have also served as principal at Hawthorne High School and Midwood/TAPS. During my tenure as an assistant principal, I worked at Hopewell High School, Vance High School, and J.M. Alexander Middle School.
I am active in the community, serve on numerous boards and am a member of various organizations. I am currently a member of the board at the University City YMCA and Empowherment. I am also a member of the Charlotte Chapter of the Links Incorporated and Delta Sigma Theta Incorporated. I have been married for 17 years and have one son.
Mrs. Jametta Martin-Tanner, principal
