Our mission at Adrian Schools is to prepare students for the future.

Adrian Middle School houses approximately 150 students in grades 6-8. We serve as a transition from elementary school to high school. All of our middle school students take English, social studies, science, and math. Sixth graders also take art, physical education, and computer. Seventh graders take FACS, technology, health, and physical education. Eighth graders take art, physical education, and data processing. Students in the middle school may elect to take band and/or choir.
Our school is on a eight period day. Middle school students move from teacher to teacher. They keep their books and belongings in lockers in the hallway. Students are reminded that they are allowed to bring a lock to school for their lockers to secure their belongings; however, most students elect not to lock their lockers. We are a very safe and respectful school. At the beginning of each day, students report to their advisors for a 15-minute homeroom period. During this time, students may do a group activity, study, read, watch Channel 1 news, or meet with teachers.
We offer Study Tables every Wednesday after school for those students who need a little extra help with their homework and/or studies. The Study Tables are supervised and instructed by Adrian MS/HS licensed teachers. This Study Table is required for those students who have becom academically ineligible to participate in extra-curricular activities. Throughout the course of the year, we have noticed an increase in attendance for those students who need that extra assistance. Parents, if you would like your child to attend Study Tables, please contact the middle school office.
Our support staff for Adrian Middle School includes Tanya Krueger Psychologist and Rita Domagaala School Nurse. Please feel free to contact any one of them or myself with any questions or concerns.
