2019 Blue Ribbon School

 We are not a good school, we are a GREAT school!

Montevideo Middle School (MMS) has a student-centered approach that focuses on student achievement while educating the whole child. The MMS moto is: We are not a good school, we are a GREAT school! MMS is unique as we serve students in grades 4-7.  MMS is committed to having high expectations for all students by developing positive relationships and providing a safe and secure learning environment. 

MMS supports its students’ academic, behavioral, social, and emotional successes by using the Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) approach. Our efforts in using MTSS over the past several years have allowed for the excellent progress in closing the achievement gap within our disadvantaged student populations while moving all learners forward. Academically, our Tier 1 focus is a strong core curriculum based on the Minnesota State Standards.

In addition to standards alignment, all students are supported through a built-in, daily-scheduledWhat I Need” (WIN) time. WIN time provides students the opportunity to get extra help from their core teachers to increase their understanding of our essential learning targets in a timely manner. Students who do not need additional support during this time are encouraged to pursue several options: create a passion project, practice independent reading, refine math and reading skills using various online programs, or complete homework. A wide array of standardized assessments are used to place students with math and reading difficulties in our Tier 2 system of supports. Reading and math intervention classes are designed to provide additional opportunities to our struggling reading and math students and help them improve specific skills. Intervention groups are fluid; assessment data is reviewed at least three times a year and students are placed based on need. Students who continue to have difficulty, despite receiving Tier 1 and Tier 2 supports and interventions, may be referred to special education, which is our Tier 3 system of academic support. 

I
n 2017, we began implementing Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). HAWK Pride is our district motto which stands for, Have respect, Act responsibly, Work hard, and Keep safe. A behavior matrix provides students with expected behaviors in each area of the school. All staff strive to recognize students who display positive HAWK Pride by giving students HAWK awards for their efforts.
