Did you know that HMS raised over $500 to fight childhood cancer in one day?  This is one example of the many charitable causes we support, including the American Red Cross, Toys for Tots, the Hartland Optimist Club, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and many, many more.

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 State of Michigan student achievement 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.
