Welcome to Scott Middle School

Dave Knudsen, Principal

I am honored to be the principal at Scott Middle School, home of the Shining Stars.

At Scott Middle School, our staff takes great pride in holding our students to high expectations in academics, behavior, and social skills.  We believe in the Scott Mission Statement: Scholarship, Commitment, Opportunity, Teamwork, and Tradition.

Scott Middle School serves students in grades 6-8.  Each grade level has two instructional teams.  This model provides the opportunity for the students and teachers to be a part of a team community.  Each grade level also has a counselor who works closely with the students, their families, and teachers.  We have many other support services for students.  Some of these include: The Learning Center that provides individual academic support, BIST (Behavior Intervention Support Team) creates a positive learning environment through consistent expectation throughout the building, Student Assistant Team establishes individual plans for students in the areas of academics, social skills, and/or behavior.  We also support students through a strong Academic Connection (i.e. Art, Music, Computer, Family Consumer Science, Industrial Technology, etc.) program and staff.  We know technology is an important part of today’s world; as a result, we promote the use of technology and computers as a regular element of classroom routine and instruction.

Our goal is to provide students with a rigorous academic curriculum, a safe and positive learning environment, and a school where all students feel welcome and a strong connection to the school community.  We take great pride in focusing on our student’s strength and individual differences by honoring diversity and celebrating achievements.  We encourage parent support of their student and feel an involved parent is the most important piece of a successful education.
