About the Middle School
Welcome to Reed City Middle School!
Here at RCMS, we are committed to challenging students and staff to reach their highest potential by promoting academic excellence, nurturing positive self-esteem, and reinforcing responsible behavior.
We promote academic excellence by focusing on learning. The middle years are the perfect time to learn how to learn. We take a true middle school approach: we encourage students to try many different exploration classes, work in grade-level teams, promote movement for students, and provide opportunities for engagement by processing information with peers. We offer class periods during the day for students to have the opportunity to explore different topics or get extra help on subject areas.
We encourage a growth mindset. Now is the time to learn from mistakes, continue to grow, and believe that it may be difficult, but you just aren’t there, yet...you will be if you continue to TRY.
At Reed City Middle School everyone belongs. Our teachers depend on each other and collaborate often and we see students as individuals who we believe in. Our team concept includes core classes and a homeroom class that reinforces independent reading. All students also have the opportunity to explore classes and academic success. All students also attend rotation classes, physical education, technology, art, band, and in 8th grade, shop.
From the beginning of 5th grade to leaving at the end of 8th grade, students change so much. In fact, it is the second largest period of growth development in one’s life. Although it is a short time, Middle School is a pivotal time in a student's life and the RCMS team is here to support and guide our students to be successful in all areas of their life.
