Middle School

Preparing students for the future

In middle school, students continue on their academic journey and strengthen skills in reading, writing, math, science, social studies and fine arts.

The transition into middle school can be a major event in the life of a young person. Creating a safe and positive learning environment for all students is a priority. Where Everyone Belongs (WEB) is a transition program that welcomes students to middle school with the goal to make new students feel comfortable throughout the first year of their middle school experience. 

Families are encouraged to explore and learn more about the four middle schools at Robbinsdale Area Schools.
