Griswold Middle School (GMS), located in beautiful eastern Connecticut, serves approximately 560 students in grades 5-8 from Griswold and the borough of Jewett City. GMS is part of the Griswold Public School campus and each school strives to uphold the district’s mission statement and work towards the Middle School's three goals below.

Griswold Middle School prides itself in caring for all aspects of children. Through high expectations in academics and behavior, tempered by comprehensive access to the Arts and Athletics, we build the structures that enable our students to excel. By working and growing together, we continue to rise to the challenge of providing the best education possible in a climate of change.


Goal #1: Social and Emotional Learning

Griswold Middle School commits to developing and strengthening all students' capacity in CASELs five core competencies. This will be accomplished through the CREW program which will create supportive school communities in which all students are valued.

Goal #2: Blended and Personalized Learning

Griswold Middle School staff will embrace and acknowledge the benefits of personalized learning through the use of blended learning. All teachers will be exposed to various methods of blended learning in order to create at least one unit to implement this school year.

Goal #3: Strengthening Tier 1

Griswold Middle School will provide support and effective training to their staff with regards to research-based Tier 1 instruction and interventions within a middle school classroom. Teachers will regularly and thoughtfully identify and implement positive Tier 1 academic and behavior interventions within their classrooms.
