Sylvan Middle School

Sylvan MS mascot Sylvan Middle School's facility is in need of significant upgrade or replacement. Here's the latest developments:
  • A community forum was held Sept. 24.
  • District staff have determined they will not recommend building a new school as a solution.
  • All solutions under discussion would see Sylvan remain a 6-8 school.
  • Feedback and the Q&A from the April community brainstorming session has been posted. 
  • The Board of Education is expected to take action on any recommendation on Nov. 18. No changes will occur prior to the 2015-16 school year.
You can learn more about the conversation on the Help Sylvan page.
