Principal's Page

Hello Centauri Families,

I am truly humbled and honored to be the principal of Centauri Middle School.  I am committed to providing a safe and inclusive school environment where students and staff strive to achieve academic excellence and build up students to be well-rounded members of our school community and the world at large.

I grew up in a home where education was always at the forefront of life.  Both of my parents were teachers, and they instilled educational values and principles which have taught me that education is a great equalizer which provides knowledge, understanding, and lifelong learning opportunities.  It is these values that I strive to teach and encourage in students so that they may also learn the importance of their education and the opportunities it can offer.  As I go into my 25th year of education, I am more excited than ever to lead our school to contniued success.  

I am looking forward to this year and beyond as we continue our mission of education and excellence at Centauri Middle School.  My door is always open and I look forward to working with our great students, staff, parents, and community.  Please do not hesitate to contact me at or 719-274-4301.

Warm Regards,

Brian Riccatone
