Welcome to McCulloch Intermediate School (grades 5-6) and Highland Park Middle School (grades 7-8). MIS and HPMS are exemplary schools committed to continuous improvement for students and faculty. As students progress through these formative years, teachers and faculty provide a safe environment for learning and growing. We are builders, providing a strong and solid bridge to support students as they make the journey from pre-adolescence to future schools and careers. We are preparing global leaders and exemplary citizens who understand that service to others is the cornerstone of effective leadership.
Every child needs and deserves support, nurture, safety, and the opportunity to learn in his or her own unique way. Every child can learn more than he or she already knows. Students, teachers, and others in the learning organization must commit exemplary effort in order to obtain exemplary results. Exemplary results go far beyond test scores. Exemplary results mean students are academically, socially, emotionally, and physically prepared at the highest levels to excel at any challenge and opportunity that comes their way in the future. Exemplary results mean students who are highly  motivated and eager to vigorously pursue challenges, while demonstrating exemplary character and service to others.
Join us on our journey...
