PMS Academics

Middle school is a time of change.  The workload and social adjustments are greater than at the elementary level.  Middle schoolers are encompassing both more freedom and more responsibility.  At the same time, they are undergoing tremendous emotional, social, and physical changes. It can also be an opportunity for new beginnings, such as new friends, new teachers, and a new school environment.  We work diligently to ensure that all students learn well in a safe, orderly, responsible, and inviting environment.

Our goal is to ensure that every student leaves eighth grade with the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful in a rigorous high school curriculum and to consider goals in future education in an ever-changing technological society.  We encourage our students to challenge themselves intellectually and physically, to take risks, and to be upstanders, not bystanders.  With your participation and support, your child will embark on a journey of academic and personal success during his or her three-year tenure at Piedmont Middle School.
