Mission & Goals

School Mission

The professional staff of Gwendolyn Brooks Middle School believes that all children can learn and that each child must be given the opportunity to reach his/her maximum educational potential. The faculty is totally committed to the development of the "whole child" with focus on the acquisition of basic and higher– order thinking skills. We will also consider the uniqueness of adolescents, pursue the development of personal skills, positive attitudes, interpersonal skills, self-esteem, values, morals and all the characteristics necessary for becoming a responsible citizen. The staff accepts the challenge for preparing our students for the responsibilities of today, tomorrow and the future. We are also committed to instill within our students love and thirst for learning, thus enabling them to realize the value of a quality education.

We CAN and WILL make the difference

School Vision

We envision Gwendolyn Brooks Middle School as a safe learning environment where education is the shared responsibility of the students, parents/guardians, school, and community. It is a place where students are encouraged to be successful and meet the challenges of their academic future in order to become model citizens in our global society. Gwendolyn Brooks Middle School will exhibit an organization of collaboration, shared decision-making and exemplary educational opportunities.
