Welcome, Principal Campbell!

By Fairfax County Public Schools Region 3 Office
April 12, 2023

The Region 3 Leadership Team is pleased to announce that Mr. Andrew Campbell, currently an assistant principal at Centreville High School (HS), has been appointed as Principal of Key Middle School (MS), effective Friday, April 14, 2023. Mr. Campbell is returning “home” to Key MS as he previously served as assistant principal at Key MS.

Mr. Campbell has 17 years of experience as an educator. He began his career as an English teacher at Eagle Academy, Bronx, NY. After moving to Virginia, he served as an English teacher, special education department chair, and assistant principal at Sandburg MS, as well as an assistant principal at Key MS, before accepting an assistant principal position at Centreville HS.

Mr. Campbell is an experienced instructional leader. He has extensive experience supporting teachers and teams, having supervised most departments during his assistant principalships.  He has created professional development to improve teachers’ skills, he has coordinated FCPS central office supports to accomplish school improvement goals, and he has empowered Multi-Tiered Systems of Support teams to ensure that teachers and teams provide academic and wellness interventions to students.  While at Key, Mr. Campbell spearheaded a multi-part dialogue with elementary feeder schools to accomplish better math outcomes for students.  This led to more strategic course selection in middle school and impacted instruction at the elementary schools.

Mr. Campbell is an engaging leader. He is visible and approachable, and he understands that positive relationships with students will result in stronger relationships with their families.  Mr. Campbell is excited about rejoining the administrative team at Key and reestablishing himself into the culture of belonging that Key MS has embodied, affectionately stated as “Key, the place to be, the place for me.”

Mr. Campbell earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in theater and English from The State University of New York, Geneseo, his Master of Arts degree in English and Comparative Literature from Columbia University, New York, NY, and his Licensure Endorsement in Administration and Supervision from the University of Virginia.

Mr. Campbell is looking forward to partnering with students, families, and staff to continue to foster a warm, safe, nurturing, and inclusive learning environment. Please join me in welcoming Mr. Campbell as the new principal at Key Middle School!
