Georgia Parent School Survey
A growing body of research indicates that schools with positive school climate ratings have better test scores and higher graduation rates. School climate refers to the quality and character of school life. Our students and teachers have taken the survey. We would like our parents to take the survey too. Take the survey and let us know how we are doing.

From the Principal
everyone! On behalf of the GMS faculty and staff I would like to take the
opportunity to thank you for entrusting your child to our care. We are
dedicated to making sure your child receives the best middle school experience
possible. Our faculty and staff perform their duties and responsibilities to
the best of their ability each day with pleasure, but that alone cannot
guarantee student success. We need your help in making sure that your child
realizes that with maturity comes increased responsibility. The teachers have
high expectations for student success and have indicated areas where you can
provide assistance. First, please make sure your child attends school every
day, for the entire school day, as much as possible. Nothing can replace the
direct instruction that the teacher provides each day. Second, your child must
take responsibility for learning by completing ALL assignments to the best of
his/her ability and by having the assignment readily available during class. Third,
your child must attend to the lesson being taught and seek clarification
immediately if he/she doesn’t understand any concept. Fourth, your child should
develop and utilize effective study skills to include preparing homework each
day, preparing for upcoming tests, and reading as much as possible in order to
increase reading skills. Finally, your child should participate in
extra-curricular activities such as sports or clubs, if possible. While not all inclusive, we believe the
aforementioned responsibilities will definitely promote student success. We invite you to visit GMS to see all of the
wonderful learning experiences taking place. As always, if you have any
questions or concerns, please give us a call.
