About Skaneateles Middle School
The Middle School, with approximately 400 students, covers grades 6-8. There are 60 staff members that educate our students. We are a true middle school that believes in the Seven Essential Elements of a Standards Focused Middle School set forth by the State of New York (www.nysed.gov). These elements have two goals:
We are organized by teams, and that team effort carries through our middle school. Students, teachers, parents and administrators work together to give our students the best opportunity to achieve their goals.
The mission statement of the Skaneateles Middle School is to make the transition from childhood to adolescence a positive experience within a safe environment. Opportunities are provided for exploring and applying learning to develop a strong knowledge base where responsibility, respect, integrity, teamwork and work ethic are valued. In turn, students will demonstrate respect for themselves, others and their school, community and world environment. The development of these qualities is shared by the staff, students, parents and community.
