Vision/Mission Statement

Joseph George Middle School

A Visual and Performing Arts Academy

“Where ARTS and Academics Excel”

Be Accountable, Be Respectful, Be Thoughtful and Be Safe (ARTS)


At Joseph George Middle School, we will provide education and empowerment to our students as they navigate life-long learning through compassion, self-discipline, creativity and social awareness. All students will become successful communicators, collaborators, creators and critical thinkers through intellectually stimulating, emotionally supportive, aesthetically enriching and relevant academic programs infused with the arts.


Our vision is that all our students will leave Joseph George Middle School having exceeded or met standards in ELA and math while participating in the VAPA program through an elective and/or integrated art in core classes. Our school’s model program is built around student engagement in a rigorous academic program, with blended learning as a tool to support and differentiate our students’ learning, as well as extra supports, and continuously improving our positive school culture by using positive behavior supports and emphasis in the arts.
