In District 201-U, it is the unique function of the middle school to serve as a bridge between elementary and high school. Staff members understand the special needs of young adolescents and believe that our ‘team’ concept, academic offerings and extra-curricular programs provide excellent opportunities for students to become well-rounded individuals.
