Welcome to the Vermillion Middle School homepage. Vermillion Middle School is an Advance-Ed accredited middle school that consists of grades 6, 7, and 8. We strive to provide a climate that has high academic expectations and utilizes effective teaching methods and strategies designed for this age group. On-going staff development activities are designed to keep our teachers on the cutting edge of educational research and practice.
Our curriculum provides students with the opportunity to develop a strong background in mathematics, science, reading, language arts, and social studies. It also provides students with the opportunity to explore art, band, vocal music, physical education, health, technology modules, consumer science, computers and foreign language.
Extracurricular activities include show choir, jazz band, Math Counts, Science Olympiad, Quiz Bowl and Geography Bee. Extracurricular athletics include football, basketball, gymnastics, volleyball, wrestling, tennis, golf, and track.
Many staff members at Vermillion Middle School have advanced degrees and they work hard to meet the needs of each student in our building. The School District has invested a considerable amount of time, training and resources in technology that the staff integrates into the learning process. Three computer labs, a technology module program, Smart Boards, mobile iPad labs and high speed internet access allow our students to utilize technology as they learn. As our mission states, we strive:
"TO EMPOWER ALL STUDENTS TO MAXIMIZE THEIR SUCCESS IN OUR GLOBAL COMMUNITY."
