About Sylvandale Middle School

Welcome to Sylvandale Middle School!

Sylvandale Middle School is part of the Franklin-McKinley School District. We set high expectations for all students, staff, and administration. We focus on student learning and provide authentic, rigorous, and relevant material in our classrooms. We will be Respectful, Responsible and Safe at all times.

The Career Academies at Sylvandale Middle School are small learning communities offering a pre-college preparatory curriculum with a focus on health, information technology, and humanities. Within each Academy, students complete a traditional course of work and participate in a variety of enrichment activities, gaining skills as well as exposure to a variety of career opportunities. Highly qualified teachers from different subjects work closely together, creating a challenging and engaging environment where close student-teacher relationships are formed.

Each Career Academy is a two year program. Students are expected to remain in their chosen Academy for the full two years. Students take the required core courses with a focus on the career theme of their particular Academy. Academic courses are at grade level with support intervention, if needed.

Parent involvement plays a critical role in the success of our students and we encourage participation in a variety of ways. For parent involvement opportunities, click here. Please feel free to contact school administration, counselors, or staff at any time if you have concerns or suggestions.
