Alice Drive Middle School, a nationally accredited STEM school, is ready to RISE in the 2022-2023 school year! There will be a “Hawk Jump Start” for 6th graders on Wednesday, August 10. All 6th graders are welcome to drop in the Nest between 8:30 -11:00 a.m. to help with transition to middle school. Tables will be available in the gym with general information and staff will be available to answer any questions.

Monday, August 15 is the official first day of school for all students. Monday/Tuesday, August 15-16 will be designated as our “RISE” 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. School pictures will be taken on Tuesday, August 16.  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.
