• Greetings Jaguar Family,


    It is an honor to introduce myself as the new Principal of Nolan Richardson Middle School. I am excited to serve a community where student success is the expectation and the reality. The accomplishments of Richardson students are a result of ongoing dedication, hard work and partnerships from students, parents, school staff, and community members. NRMS will continue to offer numerous opportunities for students to grow academically, socially, and emotionally.

     I am a proud product and educator of EPISD. Due to my father’s military service, I made El Paso home on several occasions. In addition to attending schools in Alabama, Georgia, and Germany, I had the opportunity to attend five EPISD schools. I have had the pleasure of serving EPISD students and other stakeholders for 12 years. I was a teacher at Canyon Hills Middle School, Transmountain Early College High School, and Bowie High School. Additionally, I was the Pre-Engineering Magnet Coordinator and an assistant principal at Chapin High School.

    I embrace the opportunity to foster a positive and caring environment where decisions are based on what is best for students. Communication and collaboration are key to student success, so please feel free to contact us if you have suggestions, concerns, or questions.



     Ragen Garrett Chappell

    NRMS Principal
