Welcome to HMS

We welcome you to Hannibal Middle School (HMS).  We hope that this school year will be pleasant and successful for you. HMS encourages you to be involved and engaged in courses and extracurricular activities that expand your knowledge and experiences that will help determine and direct you to the pathways you would like to follow in your future. HMS offers a balanced, comprehensive, and success-oriented curriculum. Students are exposed to a learning environment that is sensitive, caring, and supportive to their needs. Careful articulation of the transition from elementary and the preparation to high school is carried out at HMS. The middle school curriculum is more exploratory in nature than the elementary school and less specialized than the curriculum found at the high school level.  Child-centeredness is emphasized, blending both academic and affective experience.  The academic program of the middle school emphasizes skill development through science, social studies, mathematics, language arts and reading. 

A well-defined skill sequence is used as a guide in each team making up the middle school physical education, fine arts, practical arts, health and guidance activities. Exploratory opportunities are offered to students through classes, clubs, extracurricular programs and special interest groups.  The affective program is integrated with the  curriculum creating opportunities for students to  interact socially, to experience democratic  processes, to explore areas not required in the  curriculum, to develop and practice responsible  behavior, and experience working with individuals  of various age groups.
