Elkton Middle School

Elkton Middle School
  • At Elkton Middle School, we collaborate with families and community to help adolescents realize their individual potential. A lofty vision, but we believe in the ability of all students to achieve literacy, civic responsibility, and be college and career ready upon graduation from high school. We prepare our students for these responsibilities through providing rigorous coursework, challenging students to put forth their best effort and by providing technology, skills and knowledge necessary for success in our global society. Our motto, "Better Together," is much more than words on paper. Parents, teachers, counselors, secretaries, cafeteria workers, custodians, bus drivers and other support staff all contribute to the success of our students. Through regular, positive communication, honest reflection and the willingness to continuously improve, we work "Better Together" to meet our students' needs
