MMS Mission Statement
Through shared accountability, the Millennium Middle School community is committed to preparing all students with the academic foundation and habits of mind necessary to be constructive, contributing members of society.

Welcome to Millennium Middle School
Parents and community are integral members of the MMS educational team. These dedicated volunteers make a difference in the school environment by serving on committees that discuss new/revised building procedures, building budgets, fund-raising, school improvement, etc. To cultivate active parent and community participation, C.H.E.E.R.S., M.S.P.T.O., Band Boosters, Choir Boosters, Eighth Grade Dance Parent Committee, and the Shared Involvement Process Team (S.I.P.) hold regular meetings throughout the school year.

MMS is committed to “quality with equity” a concept to improve the performance of all students, focusing on equity of results and closing achievement gaps. We are data-driven and results-oriented, implementing instructional best practices to engage students, help them construct knowledge, and enable them to demonstrate content mastery. The middle school curriculum is designed to challenge all levels of ability and interests. In order to achieve a quality education for each individual, students are offered as many opportunities as possible, balancing academic requirements with elective choices. The Mathematics and Language Arts curriculum at MMS has been recently realigned to confirm to the Common Core State Standards. Science and Social Studies curriculum currently meets the Standards and Benchmarks of the Michigan Curriculum Framework, as well as the grade level content expectations (GLCEs), and is aligned with the Common Core State Standards. Millennium also houses the PLUS program, servicing the district’s middle school students who are academically talented in mathematics and/or language arts.

In addition to academics, Millennium fosters development of Habits of the Mind which help students acquire the skills, attitudes, and habits necessary for success not only as a learner and problem solver in the school setting, but also as at home and, in the future, as a responsible adult in a workplace setting. The Habits of Mind are comprised of: Persisting; Managing Impulsivity; Listening with Understanding and Empathy; Thinking Flexibly; Metacognition; Striving for Accuracy; Questioning and Posing Problems; Apply Past Knowledge to New Situations; Thinking and Communicating with Clarity and Precision; Gathering Data Through All Senses; Creating, Imagining, and Innovating; Responding with Wonderment and Awe; Taking Responsible Risks; Finding Humor; Thinking Interdependently; and Remaining Open to Continuous Learning.

Belief Statement:

  • We believe in collaboration between all members of the educational community.
  • We believe our educational system provides the skills necessary for each student to reach his or her own potential.
  • We believe in providing a challenging yet supportive learning environment with high academic expectations.
  • We believe that a successful education program includes meaningful supplementary exposure to the arts, technology, and athletics.
  • We believe that exemplary teaching involves reflecting upon and adjusting instruction to meet the diverse needs and learning styles of students.
  • We believe in a quality educational program that prepares civic-minded students to be lifelong learners in a changing world.

School Improvement Goals

Reading: All students will be proficient in reading comprehension when engaged in both narrative and expository text (including topics within the science and social studies curricula).

Writing: All students will be proficient in writing (including topics within the science and social studies curricula).

Math: All students will be proficient in mathematical reasoning.

School Accreditation

The AdvancEd/NCA accreditation process is firmly embedded in the Millennium Middle School (MMS) continuous School Improvement Process. This process provides a solid framework for increasing student achievement at Millennium Middle School. During the 2013-2014 school year, we reviewed and updated our NCA/School Improvement goals, and strategies focusing on developing a Culture of Thinking and use of the workshop model, in the areas of reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. In addition, we reviewed and updated our instructional strategies to use with targeted subgroups of students to help us narrow their achievement gaps.

In March of the current school year, Millennium Middle School completed and submitted to the state our interim Self-Assessment/Ed YES! Report.

Our next external evaluation is scheduled during the 2017-18 school year. MMS staff will continue to monitor progress on our school improvement goals by gathering and analyzing student achievement data. As appropriate, we will add or modify instructional strategies. In addition, we will be engaged in professional development activities to prepare for the expectations of the Common Core. We will continue with our implementation of Visible Thinking Routines throughout the curriculum at all grade levels. AdvancEd and school improvement activities will be conducted at Tuesday staff meetings throughout the year, as well as during professional development days in November and March.
