PSMS Beliefs

Each student is a valuable individual with unique needs.

Students learn best in a safe and comfortable environment with clear goals and high expectations for student achievement.

Instructional methods and evaluations should be provided to accommodate the various methods of learning preferred by students.

Pointe South Middle School, staff, parents, and the community members must share the responsibility of ensuring that our instructional strategies and evaluation processes utilize “Best Practices.” 

A commitment to promoting mutual respect and elevating self-esteem is fundamental to the development of productive individuals.

“At Pointe South Middle School, we believe every student deserves a safe, positive, supportive learning community where mutual respect for academic achievement is the standard and our goal is to let excellence, purpose and high expectations drive achievement.
