Welcome to the Greene County Middle School web page! Whether you are a member of the Greene County community, considering a move to our school district, or simply surfing the ‘net, it is our desire that you find this site filled with helpful information.
The faculty and staff of Greene County Middle School are committed to providing excellent educational opportunities for our students; opportunities based in both personal relevance and academic rigor. By delivering meaningful learning experiences in a positive, caring atmosphere, students are provided the opportunity to develop their unique talents as they prepare to pursue of their goals, hopes, and dreams.
At GCMS, we understand the many challenges that students face in today’s world. It is our mission to prepare each student to successfully meet those challenges with the support of their families, teachers, and community. Our mission is to provide all students with the foundation for lifelong learning. This foundation is built by:
~ developing the individual and social responsibilities of students;
~ encouraging them to make productive use of time, technology, and resources;
~ actively engaging them through diverse instructional strategies; and
~ encouraging each to be critical thinkers.
Middle school is a great time for students to explore and grow, forge friendships, discover the person they wish to become. The faculty and staff of GCMS want all students to experience the true excitement of school by becoming actively involved in the school community. GCMS proudly offers an excellent activities program consisting of clubs, organizations, musical groups, and athletic teams. I encourage students and parents, alike, to select something and get involved!
Lastly, please refer to the Student Handbook located on this website to assist you during your school year whenever questions arise regarding school policies, procedures, conduct, activities, or academics. If concerns arise, please do not hesitate to contact your student’s teacher, coach, activity sponsor, counselor, or me.
We are appreciative of the opportunity to educate the children of Greene County and grateful for the trust afforded to us through that responsibility. We will teach accordingly.
