Farmville Middle School opened its doors for the first time, for the 1975-76 school year.
Farmville Middle School is home to approximately 675 students in grades 6-8. We are the 4th largest middle school in the county, which consists of seven total true middle schools. Farmville Middle is located 10 miles outside the city limits of Greenville, North Carolina which is the home to East Carolina University. We are a unique school system and consider ourselves a true community school mostly because our elementary school, middle school, and high school are all side by side. Farmville Middle School's enrollment consists of students from the city of Greenville as well as the town of Farmville, Fountain, and Falkland. With that being said, our school encompasses both rural and suburban communities. We have approximately 45 certified staff members and 7 classified staff members. Over the past several years, we have had a fair number of students enroll from private schools, charter schools, neighboring counties, and out-of-state schools due to our academic success and family-like atmosphere. We take pride in our academics, the programs we have to offer, and our close-knit community. Our teachers take pride in growing their students and helping them achieve academic success. Our advanced, high school class numbers have recently increased as well. We currently have 7th and 8th grade students taking Math I and Math II and have begun to offer World History. Farmville Middle has exceeded growth five out of the last six years, and we continue to raise growth/proficiency scores.
We believe that all students can learn, and learning is our top priority. We push students to excel academically as well as socially. We do so by developing lessons that are rigorous, relevant to our students backgrounds/beliefs, and allow for higher-order thinking skills. We strive to achieve academic excellence and use student data to drive our instruction. Our staff members model the behaviors expected from students and go above and beyond to form meaningful relationships with students and parents. For the past several years, Farmville Middle School has incorporated Sean Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens to motivate our students and socially prepare them for their teenage years. We believe in preparing our students and educating them about post-secondary opportunities. We believe in teaching bell-to-bell and allowing for high student collaboration and engagement.
