    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.


  • Upcoming School Schedule: Make-up Days, Spring Recess

    REMINDER: due to the need to compensate for days of instruction lost over the winter months, school will be in session next week through Thursday, April 18. There will then be no school (and offices will be closed) Friday April 19 through Monday, April 22. The normal school schedule will then resume on Tuesday, April 23. This change to the original spring recess is necessary in order for the district to remain in compliance with Pennsylvania state regulations governing the number of school days that must be offered.
