    Mission Statement


     Southern Guilford Middle School is committed to providing a safe and orderly educational environment in which all students will experience success in social, academic, physical and emotional development.


    "Create A Culture of Excellence."



    This We Believe...


     All students can and must learn. A student should not have the choice to fail. 

    Since success breeds success and failure breeds failure, we have no option, but to assure success for every student and staff member. 

    Every SGMS student and staff member deserves all "A's": Affection; Appreciation, and Achievement. 

    "Remediation" is similar to picking students up after they fall down, nursing their wounds and trying to get them back in the "race". Interventions such as "Acceleration", Differentiated Instruction", "Action Plans" and tutoring prior to student failure are similar to "catching them" and preventing their "fall". 

    The school staff member / student relationship is the most important factor in contributing to or preventing the student's success in school. 

    A student's disadvantages or disabilities provides opportunities for growth and success, not excuses for failure. 

    In difficult times, when we are allowed less with which to work, it is our duty to ensure that every student receives our best.
    Of all the many services and “things” we can provide for students, the most important is HOPE.  Simply stated, we do not give up on kids.
