    Originally built in 1966 as a high school, the building was renovated into the middle school in 1998. Today the 157,000-square foot facility houses nearly 900 students in grades 6-8. The building boasts a full size gym, a 1,000+ seat auditorium, a card access system, and internet/television/ phone access in all classrooms.

    Our middle level instructional program is delivered through an interdisciplinary team format which stresses subject matter as well as pupil development. This configuration helps students by providing consistency while encouraging them to perceive the wholeness that exists in learning.  In addition, our middle school facilitates student transition from a self-contained elementary school setting to a departmentalized high school setting. The interdisciplinary team organization assists the students in successfully traversing the period of time between the elementary and high school years.

  • 2017-2018 School Schedule

    The March 21 closure due to snow DOES NOT mean an additional day will be added to the calendar for students. When the school board amended the 2017-18 School Year Calendar in February, it built in additional Act 80 Days that cover the possibility of another snow day. Graduation remains June 6 and the last day for students in K AM to Grade 11 will be June 8.
