Elyria Community Middle (4-8)

Dear Families, 

Elyria Community Middle School provides students in grades 4-8 with a well-rounded educational program that prepares them for success in high school and beyond. We emphasize hands-on and project-based learning with a focus on social-emotional development and character education.  

We customize instruction through small group learning and education technology. Our classrooms are equipped with Smartboards and 1:1 Chromebook access for each student.   

In middle school, we support students’ growing sense of self with elective and extracurricular offerings. Students can participate in after-school sports including Archery, Basketball & Volleyball. We offer a wide variety of clubs and extracurricular activities including Jazz Band, Choir, Chess, Craft Club, Yearbook, Self-Care Club, Yoga, Stock Market/Gaming Club, Athletics Club & Technology Club.   

Our qualified team of experienced leaders, certified teachers, instructional aides, and student-centered support staff embraces a growth mindset. We work with students, parents, and our community to create a positive school culture where students feel safe and valued.  

Students enjoy several events and traditions throughout the school year such as the Eighth grade Promotion, Family Holiday Night, Music & Band concerts, Summer Bash, and many more. 

We encourage families to attend special events and become active members of our Elyria Middle School community.
