Our Mission: The faculty, staff, and community of Gildersleeve Middle School are committed to providing a safe and caring environment in which all students can learn. We are dedicated to the emotional, social, physical and intellectual growth of each child during this transitional period of development. We motivate and encourage students to think critically, apply knowledge, explore individual talents, and take responsibility for their own learning. We strive to develop productive citizens who make responsible decisions and respect the rights of others. We challenge the whole school community to work together to accomplish our mission.
