About Gainesville Middle School

Caught in the middle! No longer children, but not yet adults. What an ever-changing time of life, characterized by an unparalleled energy level to balance social, emotional and academic learning. The middle school instructional day consists of five blocks of instruction.  The core blocks are 50 minutes in length, and focuses on learning opportunities in math, social studies, science, language arts and academic study skills.  Remediation, enrichment and acceleration opportunities are offered during the daily achievement period--What I Need (WIN).  The exploratory block consists of two classes that are each approximately 50 minutes in length.  Classes are offered on a nine-week basis, and may include courses in career and technology education (CTAE), fine arts (band, music, chorus, drama, art), modern languages (Spanish), and physical education and health.
