EMPATHY. EQUITY. ACHIEVEMENT.
Events & Announcements
SDMS students enjoyed a virtual author visit with Saadia Faruqi to learn more about her journey as a writer, her books, and her new Mad Libs Book on Eid al-Fitr! We even played a round of virtual Mad Libs! The visit was organized by the SDMS Library.
Mr. Minor's 8th grade SDMS students demonstrated empathy and action this month raising more than $1,000 for Americares to help send medical supplies to suffering Ukrainians. With help from their teacher and the school library staff, they researched the Ukraine/Russia war; investigated and selected a non-profit organization (Americares); and created designs to make pins for peace using the school library's button maker. They learned that empathy and energy can make a difference in our world!

Silas Deane Middle School
Educates approximately 570 seventh and eighth graders and serves students from a variety of ethnic and racial backgrounds. We are a state-of-the-art facility consisting of ceiling mounted projection systems in each classroom, and teacher stations consisting of DVD/DVR/CD players. In addition, the school has a television studio, 26 interactive smart boards and 4 computer labs.
SDMS is organized into student-teacher teams offering classes in language arts, math, social studies, and science, world language (Spanish, French, and Italian) and/or learning strategies. In addition to the team subjects, students take classes in art, technology education, family and consumer science, physical education and music. Students rotate through unified arts classes each trimester in their teams. A trimester schedule allows for interdisciplinary unit development and implementation.
At Silas Deane Middle School we prepare students for life and life’s experiences. We believe the aim of education is a process of personal development and service that can bring fulfillment to oneself and to others. We believe that each student is unique and has a varying capacity to relate to the world of people, things, and ideas. We encourage each student to develop competency, a positive self-image, independence, a sense of responsible freedom, and a desire to express and understand feelings.
