Hello, and welcome to Pound Middle School. We are a neighborhood school with approximately 725 students in grades 6-8. We have a fun and inclusive learning environment with high expectations for all learners. At Pound Middle School it is our aim to provide the best possible middle level education program for all students. We do our best to put students and their learning at the forefront of all that we do.
We have adopted the following mission statement:
Pound Middle School has a long history of high achievement, and we are proud to maintain that as our standard for performance. We fully intend to prepare our students so they contribute to their high schools as productive scholars and participants in a wide variety of activities. We expect our students to excel here, at the high school level, and beyond.
