Welcome to Harbor Lights Middle School!

We are dedicated to the middle years.  Middle school students have unique academic, social, and emotional needs. It is our mission to develop students for academic success and to support their growth socially and emotionally in a safe environment.   We serve as the bridge from elementary school to high school.  Ultimately, we are devoted to preparing our students to be ready for college, career, and life.

At Harbor Lights we offer academically challenging programs. All students can earn high school credits beginning in sixth grade by taking a World Language (Spanish and French) course.  Additionally, we offer advanced coursework in Math, Science, Social Studies, and English Language Arts . Harbor Lights Middle School students can enter high school with potentially seven high school credits.

We also offer academic support programs that provide extended opportunities to gain skills in core academic courses. Extended coursework in Math and ELA,  as well as support services for both English language learners and students with learning disabilities, help all of our students achieve at high levels.

Respect, Responsibility, and Quality Effort are the expectations that drive our school culture. We believe that building positive relationships motivates students and staff to live up to these expectations. Our commitment to building positive relationships helps provide a safe environment where students are able to grow socially and emotionally.

If you have any questions about Harbor Lights Middle School, please feel free to contact me at (616) 786-1000, or email me.
