About Gloversville Middle School

Gloversville Middle School is located at 234 Lincoln Avenue in Gloversville. It shares a campus with Gloversville High School, located at 199 Lincoln Avenue, and serves students in grades 6-8.

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 chance to build a strong self-concept and to 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.

Gloversville Middle School is organized into three wings for each grade and serves approximately 590 students in those three grade levels. Middle school students continue their educational growth as they transition from the elementary level and prepare for high school. The instructional program is intended to provide the skills necessary for students to become independent learners. All students in eighth grade enroll in a second language (French, Latin or Spanish) and may enroll in Regents-level math and science courses. GMS offers high school credit for Integrated Algebra and Physical Setting: Earth Science. Middle school students develop the competence and confidence necessary to explore and refine their individual interests.

Several clubs and activities are available to GMS students, including: Band, Builders Club, Environmental Club, Junior National Honor Society, Drama Club, Lifetime Sports Club, Student Government Association and Yearbook.
