Mission Statement


As a creative & innovative community, Sylvan Middle School’s mission is to inspire & prepare each student to be an independent critical thinker and responsible citizen by providing challenging academic instruction & integrating 21st Century Skills within a collaborative, supportive and nurturing environment.


Each student will develop and consistently apply 21st Century Skills such as problem solving, critical and creative thinking, collaboration and application of technology.

Each student will develop and consistently demonstrate the character traits necessary to be a contributing, responsible, and caring member of our diverse community.
