Principal's Message

Welcome to Graham Middle School! It is so exciting to be a part of a district that is committed to preparing our students to be future ready. The district is fortunate to have such fantastic students, parents, and staff members. We are also thankful for such a supportive community that values education and success for all students.  Our staff is continuously working on modeling our district’s mission, Success Today, Prepared for Tomorrow. It is a very exciting time in our district as we continue to provide our students with adaptive learning environments that are prompted by student interest. 

GMS is promoting STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art + Agriculture, Math) through hands-on, problem-based learning. The goal and purpose of implementing STEAM is to prepare our students for one of the 3 E’s: Enlistment, Enrollment, or Employment.  At the middle school, we are dedicated to giving our students the opportunity to be thinkers, learners, problem solvers, and collaborators. By obtaining these skills, we are able to ensure that our students are ready when they graduate to embark on post secondary opportunities, aligned with one of the 3 E’s.
