Above all, we want to make middle school a positive experience for our students. We want our students to achieve academically, learn to believe in themselves and understand the value of giving back to the community.

What's more, we are not afraid to try new things. We have added character education, a trust card program, an Enrichment Center, and a new ALE program.

Everything we do is geared to creating an environment where students become good citizens and high achievers. We call them our magnificent and marvelous middle schoolers!

Eat Breakfast at School!

Mornings can be really crazy: the alarm doesn't go off … the kids don’t want to get up … they don’t have time to eat before the bus comes … or they’re just not ready to eat. Or maybe your teenager grabs a can of soda and a candy bar on the way to school.

If this sounds like your house, we have good news for you -- breakfast is served at school! School breakfast will give your child a healthy start to the day. A nutritious breakfast helps students be more alert so they can learn more in class. Breakfast provides vitamins and nutrients for a strong and healthy body.

Breakfast at school is affordable, too. If you qualify for free and reduced-price meals, you also qualify for the breakfast program, with no additional paperwork. You can’t find a healthy breakfast at such a low cost anywhere else.

Help your child start the day right with school breakfast!
