Preparation for high school and inspiring students
Middle schools expose students to higher-level coursework and a variety of extracurricular activities that prepare them for the rigors of high school. Whether students are learning in K-8, 6-8 or 6-12 schools, families can find the right environment to match their children’s abilities.
MPS middle schools contain the nation’s largest concentration of students participating in the innovative and nationally-recognized Project Lead the Way (PLTW), with classrooms providing instruction in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. PLTW students strongly outperform district averages on state standardized tests. Specialty school options at the middle school level include the arts, bilingual, gifted and talented, language immersion and an International Baccalaureate pre-college program.
