Mr. Jack E. Leonard
Welcome to the George Washington Middle School where students are part of a true learning community. Our school is designed to provide students with a gradual transition from the elementary setting to the high school program. The school’s environment is structured to develop academic skills, artistic exploration, life skills and social maturity. At the George Washington Middle School, we recognize the necessity to balance a rigorous academic program with an environment that is developmentally appropriate. At a time when students are maturing more rapidly than any other in their lives, we have in place a strong support system that fosters academic, social and personal growth. We also establish practices that define academic expectations, improve the quality of student work, as well as provide the opportunity for our students to learn in a variety of authentic environments.
The students at George Washington Middle School are offered many exciting opportunities through our academic and extracurricular programs. Along with math, science, language arts, social studies, and world language, our students are challenged in their special area subjects as well. These subjects include art, band, chorus, physical education, computer applications and technology education. In addition, our students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of clubs and activities afterschool to enrich their middle school experience.
We are very fortunate to have a dedicated and professional faculty that works extraordinarily hard to create an outstanding learning community. The teachers’ commitment to our students has made our school such a special place and it is an environment that prepares our students for the challenges they will face in the future.
As in any partnership, the parents, teachers and administration work closely on a daily basis to provide our students with the most rewarding educational experience possible. I look forward to working with you and wish all of our students a great school year.
