Mission

Hackensack Middle School strives to be an inviting learning environment where a shared passion for learning and nurturing is developed and sustained. In collaboration with students, teachers, families, the community, and the entire school district, we will prepare all of our students with a comprehensive education. Through academics, the arts, athletics, and extracurricular experiences, our students will become productive and responsible lifelong learners.

Academics

Hackensack Middle School (HMS) is a fifth through eighth grade middle school with a population of approximately 1600 students. Students at HMS enjoy a wide range of educational programs and activities including inquiry-based science, STEM lab, advanced level math, G&T programs, STEM design, Computer Apps, Geometry, Spanish and Italian. Our English Language Arts program at HMS aims to instill a love of reading and develop strong writing skill in our students.

Clubs

In addition to the core academic subject areas, students at HMS are exposed to the visual and performing arts. Students have the opportunity to take classes in Creative Studio, Art, Music, T.V. Studio and Band during their 4 years at Hackensack Middle School. There are also after-school extra-curricular activities for students, including Drama club, Yearbook club, T.V. Studio club, Chorus club, Robotic club and Student Council.

Teachers

One of the main goals of the HMS faculty is to collaborate with one another to increase academic achievement. The HMS faculty continues to improve their instructional skills by attending many in and out-of-district professional development for best practices and new instructional strategies. We recently concluded a school-wide initiative of providing chromebook carts in all instructional classrooms at Hackensack Middle School.

Supports

In order to meet the needs of our students, both academic and social/emotional, HMS provides child study team services, school counselors, Bilingual education, English as a Second Language, occupational therapy and special education programming with related services.

Parents

The PTA at HMS has been tremendously helpful in meeting the needs of the students. They support the school by sponsoring many academic programs, cultural events, book fairs and other activities.
