Thomas R. Grover Middle School (GMS) provides a comprehensive middle school experience based on the principles of middle level education outlined in Turning Points 2000 by Jackson and Davis. The facility and program are uniquely designed to promote discovery, effective teaming and academic excellence. Central to its mission are developing significant adult relationships with every student, providing a rigorous academic program and creating opportunity for all students to explore a wide variety of offerings.
The core academic program consists of language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, and world language. The language arts program is integrated in its approach to literature and writing. The program is well articulated from kindergarten through grade 12 and promotes literacy and effective writing and oration skills. The math program is theme-based, integrating hands-on, discovery-based learning, problem solving, mathematical modeling, and exploration, with skill development, thereby making mathematical concepts easier to learn and remember. The science program is based upon national and local standards and is designed to promote inquiry and critical thinking. The hands-on, minds-on format engages students in problem-solving activities that foster scientific inquiry and understanding. Social studies deals with ancient civilizations, United States history, and world cultures to develop critical thinking about how historical events shape modern perceptions and civilizations. In the area of world language, students have a choice of learning communication and culture in German, Chinese, French, or Spanish. This comprehensive, daily program promotes language fluency.

GMS students participate in a full compliment of exploratory classes that offer learning opportunities in music, art, performing arts, media, health, computer, life skills, and technology. In these classes, students are provided with important life and learning experiences designed to prepare them to make future educational choices. Students also participate in choral, orchestra, and instrumental music programs that provide group and individual instruction. The elective program provides extended learning opportunities including exposure to television production.

Co- and extra-curricular activities include clubs, service projects, drama, athletics, intramurals, student council, and special performance groups. Several hundred students remain after school each day to participate in these programs designed to provide a healthy social setting in which students excel in areas of their choosing. These programs foster school spirit, cooperation, and responsibility.

Effective school and home partnerships are part of what makes GMS a successful place of learning. Multiple forms of communication, such as site-based committees, PTSA, electronic information, and alliances with parents and students promote a strong work ethic and a spirit of mutual cooperation. It is understood that fostering these relationships is paramount to success.

GMS provides a comprehensive middle level program in a facility that is uniquely tailored to the needs of adolescents. The faculty is committed to implementing a thorough academic program in a supportive and understanding environment. The academic program is designed to address the demands of both state and national standards and to provide students with a well-rounded school experience.
