A Message from the Principal
Thank you for viewing our South Habersham Middle School (SHMS) Website. We hope that you find it both interesting and informative. We are working hard to add new features and update the site regularly with information that the entire SHMS community will find helpful.
Academic excellence at SHMS is founded on a partnership between students, staff, and parents. As a community of learners, we work to ensure the intellectual, ethical, physical, social and emotional growth of each student. It takes parents, school staff and the community working together to give our students the best possible chance of higher achievement as well as a positive school experience
Our staff members strive to meet the unique developmental needs of young adolescents in a positive school climate. Students and teachers are organized into grade level teams, which help create small learning environments where supportive, mutually respectful relationships flourish. Connection course offerings during the day and after school activities are provided to meet the varied interests, boundless energy, and curiosity of our students. High expectations are held for all students to meet rigorous academic standards and become lifelong learners.
SHMS is a great place for students to learn. Students are understood, challenged and cared for. South Habersham Middle School is committed to ensuring that students achieve their academic and personal potential. Students are encouraged to demonstrate a passion for learning in a nurturing environment where unique talents and backgrounds of individuals are valued and respected.
On behalf of the administration, faculty, and staff, I would like to welcome you to South Habersham Middle School and encourage you to frequently visit our school site
