Planning for students' transition to High School will begin immediately after the holiday break.

"Our mission is to challenge each student to reach his or her full potential through a quality education program. At Gloversville Middle School, all students will be given the opportunity to develop responsibility and to acquire knowledge and skills for lifelong success. Each student will be given the choices to build a strong self concept and learn to respect individual differences in an environment that is safe, orderly, positive, and student centered. By achieving this mission we will assist students in becoming productive citizens who value learning."
