Although Reidsville Middle School has existed for many years as a school for sixth and seventh graders, the school did not become the institution that it is today until 1990.  In that year, the school system added eighth grade to the middle school and moved to the building it now occupies. This structure had previously housed Reidsville Junior High School.  Open to students in 1980, the school building has had major renovations that have taken place since May of 2004.

Special Services & Facilities

Reidsville Middle School is completely networked for access from a main file server in the media center. Our school offers two flexible computer labs. All of our regular core course classrooms are equipped with Activboards and projectors to maximize student learning.  Many of these classes also use Lumens document cameras for presenting primary sources. Telephones and voicemail are available for all personnel. 

 

The school provides a full range of academic services including Exceptional Children Inclusion.  Sixth and seventh grade students have three 90 minute blocks, and eighth graders have four 65 minute classes periods of instruction for core subject areas which meet all year. Students also enroll in two additional elective courses each semester for a total of four per year.  RMS also incorporates an enrichment period that allows students to grow in their reading and math skills. The Instructional Coaches assists with curriculum mapping and learning strategies.

Special School Events

PTSO and the Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS) Program provide rewards to students on a regular basis with prizes, socialization and special events. Band and chorus students travel to unique and fun places to perform and compete with other middle schools in North Carolina. Other students participate in academic competitions in the region

Reidsville Middle School PTSO is made up of parents, teachers, and students who share the common goal of supporting the educational environment and all of its stakeholders. PTSO organizes and supports fundraisers and other school functions.

The General Assembly has finalized the budget and the Governor has signed it into law.  As a part of the budget bill, the General Assembly has made some changes to the definition of a “Low Performing School” and has given some specific guidance and direction to these schools and districts.  As defined in G.S. 115C-105.37: “The State Board of Education shall design and implement a procedure to identify low-performing schools on an annual basis. Low-performing schools are those that receive a school performance grade of D or F and a school growth score of "met expected growth" or "not met expected growth" as defined by G.S. 115C-83.15.”

The School Performance Grades are based on student achievement (80%) and growth (20%). The indicators and the proficiency standard or benchmark used for achievement include EOG assessments in Math, ELA and 8th Grade Science (Level 3 and above)

 

Reidsville Middle School received a school performance grade of D and a school growth status of “met expected growth” and as low performing schools, are required to develop an improvement plan that specifically addresses how the school will improve both the school performance grade and school growth score.
