Alice Drive Middle School, a nationally accredited STEM school, is ready to RISE in the 2021-2022 school year! Tuesday, August 17 is the official first day of school for students. Tuesday/Wednesday will be designated as our “Re-Engage” Camp. Students will receive their schedules, take ID pictures, review school-wide behavior expectations/procedures, tour the building, update Chromebooks, and explore STEM through a variety of problem-based learning activities. Information will be sent home with dates for Open House! 

Drop-off/Pick-up Procedures: Parents who bring children to school should enter campus using gate one off of University Drive by making a right turn only. The earliest students may be dropped off in the mornings is 7:10 a.m. To avoid congestion, parents are asked to make a left-turn only when exiting campus out of gate two. Walkers should enter the designated entrance in the gym foyer. In the interest of student safety, please do not drop students off on University Drive, at the front of the school, or in the bus loading/unloading area.
