Lander Middle School is a new and modern educational facility that educates students in grades 6-8.  Construction on our facility was completed in the fall of 2011.

We exist to educate all students academically, emotionally and physically in a nurturing and challenging environment to prepare them for a successful future.  We value clear goals and high expectations for student achievement which guide a relevant, challenging, integrative and exploratory curriculum. We value flexible delivery of essential curriculum to meet the varying developmental needs of our student population. We value mutual respect and responsible behavior from all members of the school community. We value nurturing a positive attitude toward learning. We value an inviting, supportive and safe environment for all members of the school community.
