Silas Deane Middle School

Silas Deane Middle School educates approximately 620 seventh and eighth graders and serves students from a variety of ethnic and racial backgrounds. We are a state-of-the-art facility consisting of ceiling mounted projection systems in each classroom, and teacher stations consisting of DVD/DVR/CD players. In addition, the school has a television studio, 26 interactive smart boards and 4 computer labs.

SDMS is organized into student-teacher teams offering classes in language arts, math, social studies, and science, world language (Spanish, French, and Italian) and/or learning strategies. In addition to the team subjects, students take classes in art, technology education, family and consumer science, physical education and music. Students rotate through unified arts classes each trimester in their teams. A trimester schedule allows for interdisciplinary unit development and implementation.

At Silas Deane Middle School we prepare students for life and life’s experiences. We believe the aim of education is a process of personal development and service that can bring fulfillment to oneself and to others. We believe that each student is unique and has a varying capacity to relate to the world of people, things, and ideas. We encourage each student to develop competency, a positive self-image, independence, a sense of responsible freedom, and a desire to express and understand feelings. 

Our developmental process designs programs based on a student’s past, present and future education. We hold that this process includes equal program opportunities for each student in terms of funding, community resources, administrative, and staff-student concern in the pursuit of academic excellence. 

All learning activities will focus on skills related to academic subject areas, vocational education, decision-making, interpersonal relationships, creative expression, and participation in the democratic process. We approve of and support programs that give each student an understanding of peoples, cultures, and communities. We believe each and every student can make a positive contribution to our society.
