Did You Know?

Did you know that eighth grade history teachers Rob Lauzon and Christine Rutkowski are piloting in- depth formative assessment work at HMS?  They participated in three days of training last summer as well as monthly training days throughout the school year.  Rob and Christine have "deconstructed" their standards into specific learning targets and are providing students with daily feedback on what they can do and where they can do better.  Students are more actively involved in their own learning, more willing to try again to improve learning, and less driven by grades.  Teachers and students are more focused on specific learning targets.  Results have been extremely positive and encouraging, so Rob and Christine have begun sharing their work with the HMS faculty.

Welcome to Hartland Middle School at Ore Creek

Hartland Middle School at Ore Creek is part of a long tradition of excellence in Hartland Schools.  We consistently outperform other schools and far exceed State averages in our yearly MEAP testing; we offer an excellent academic, athletic, and arts program; and we meet the individual social and emotional needs of our students through strong connections with adults.  We have approximately 950 students in seventh and eighth grade, with three academic teams of four core teachers per grade.  HMS offers support for struggling students – including reading and math support, co-taught classes, alternative programs, peer mentoring, tutoring, Homework Hall, and Support classes – as well as extended opportunities for qualifying advanced students including Honors Algebra, Advanced Geophysical Science, and world language classes.  The goal of our school community is to help students succeed in all aspects of middle school.  We truly believe that success is the only option for our students.
