Our Mission

Welcome to Marshall Simonds Middle School!
Marshall SImonds Middle School is a school community that is committed to supporting the academic, social, and emotional growth of each child by providing them a variety of curricular experiences.  The middle school years are among the most exciting, and sometimes tumultuous, times for young learners. We believe that all students are capable of high levels of achievement and that it is our collective responsibility to support individual students in order for them to reach their full potential. We believe that the middle school years provide us the opportunity to ignite a lifelong love for learning in our students.

Marshall Simonds Middle School has identified our core values as Perseverance, Respect, Integrity, Diversity, and Empathy.  We believe that by modeling, teaching, and celebrating P.R.I.D.E., we are preparing our students to be positive members of our local community and the greater, global society. 

Marshall Simonds Middle School provides rigorous learning opportunities that encourage all to develop their intellectual and creative potential. All in the MSMS community are inspired by the diversity that enriches both our school community and the world beyond. Everyone is challenged to grow socially, emotionally, and academically while promoting human dignity, acting with compassion and integrity, pursuing passions and interests, and seeking ways to improve our community and beyond.
