Middle School Beginnings

Harper Creek Middle School came in to existence in September of 2005.  Harper Creek Middle School was previously Harper Creek Junior High School, including grades 7-8, and the elementary schools housed K-6.  In the fall of 2005, fifth and sixth graders moved from Beadle Lake Elementary, Sonoma Elementary, and Wattles Park Elementary to the newly renovated HCMS.  Seventh and eighth grade students had been housed in the old junior high building.  Beginning in the fall of 2006, grades 5-8 were all housed in the newly renovated HCMS (old Harper Creek High School).

Harper Creek Middle School is a positive learning environment designed to address the needs of our fifth thru eighth grade students.  Our middle school provides students with many opportunities to develop academic skills, acquire fundamental knowledge, determine their interest and special talents, and experience a sense of belonging.  We focus on helping students satisfy their need for close relationships with teachers and friends while moving toward greater independence.  Students do this with the understanding support of professional educators who recognize and respond to their individual needs.
