Our middle school is comprised of grades 5-8, and each grade averages about 70 students. Our school has four "wings" in which each grade occupies one wing, and each student has their own locker.

The middle school currently operates on an 9 period day which includes the classes of ELA and math (extended periods), science, and social studies for every student. Much of our student learning centers around communication and researching skills, technology integration, and productive work in groups.

Explore classes are rotated quarterly for each student and include art, computer applications/keyboarding, robotics, Ag, guidance, digital literacy, and family consumer science depending on what grade the student is in. Our staff is moving deeper into the Iowa Core Curriculum, Concept-Based Instruction, and is beginning investigation into Standards Based Reporting. East Sac Middle School prides itself in offering the following initiates and supports to students: excellent athletic programs, outstanding band and vocal music programs, very active student council, reading and math intervention, course recovery, positive behavior supports systems, and other initiatives that support the well being and growth of our students.

The staff at East Sac Middle School believe in providing a culture for staff and students that supports learning and growth for all. Our focus is to help students develop in ways that will allow them to be successful not just on a test, but in the high school setting, and most importantly, in life. Through the development of skills, knowledge, problem-solving, and critical thinking students will be prepared for college and career success. Our goal is to keep students growing from their first day of school to their last.

MS Structure
East Sac Middle School is structured to be a collaborative decision making building. Each person on staff is a part of at least one, and usually multiple committees. Some of our committees are Scheduling, Initiative, Data, PBIS, Climate/Culture, PLC coaches, and departmental committees. Most of these committees will meet a minimum of once a month and often times more. Each committtee  brings recommendations to the entire staff for further discussion on what is best for the system and students within it. From there, decisions can be made.
