MIDDLE SCHOOL MISSION STATEMENT
The central purpose of our school is the achievement of academic excellence. Our school community strives to empower all students to succeed in a changing world.
MIDDLE SCHOOL PHILOSOPHY
The Middle School is dedicated to providing an environment of educational excellence and equal opportunity for all students. All students will have an opportunity to develop their individual talents and excel academically, physically, socially and emotionally. Students will have the opportunity to receive the care and support services needed to progress successfully through the unique period of adolescence; they will be exposed to a rich, varied and intellectually challenging curriculum designed for middle school students. The school environment will be safe, healthy, clean, attractive and conducive to learning and achieving. All students will be increasingly encouraged to be responsible for their learning, accountable for their actions, and respectful of the rights of others.
We believe middle school students need structure and guidance during these early adolescent years. The team concept has allowed middle school to focus on these needs. The team coordinates with other staff members, parents, and students in order to provide the most positive and meaningful educational experience possible. Parents/Guardians may request a team meeting at any time during the school year by contacting the Team Leader. Afternoon and evening conferences will be available to all parents/guardians in the fall.
The Middle School Unified Arts Team includes Art, Music, Technology, Health, Library, Physical Education, TV Production, Spanish teachers, and counselors. In addition, classroom teacher, the School Adjustment Counselor, the School Nurse, the Principal, and other staff members make up our Middle School Instructional Support Team, which works together to support all students.
The end result is that we function as one "family" dedicated to promoting a learner-centered atmosphere. We strive to meet the needs of each class, each child, and every family at Millis Middle School.
