410 WILLIAMS STREET | LONGMEADOW | MASSACHUSETTS | 01106 | P 413-565-4260

Williams Middle School is dedicated to the overall school district mission of ensuring all students excel in learning, succeed in life, and enrich our community. In addition, we are committed to supporting a successful transition from childhood to early adolescence. As mentors of change – personally, academically and socially, we will strive to:

    • Create an environment for learning that develops a spirit of inquiry, encourages personal excellence, and fosters self-esteem.
    • Support and encourage each individual to reach his/her potential.
    • Provide a highly motivated and supportive staff, and a strong, diverse curriculum that recognizes and accommodates individual learning styles.
    • Foster a community (climate) of understanding, compassion, and respect.

"All students, regardless of race, color, sex, gender identity, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, or homelessness, have equal access to the general education program and the full range of any occupational or vocational programs offered by the district."

Safe Homes

All parents of Longmeadow middle and high school students are invited to the first Safe Homes meeting of the 2019-2020 school year. Safe Homes is a network of parents who are interested in working together to prevent youth substance use. The first meeting will take place on Wednesday, September 25th at 7pm in the Business and Technology Center (BTC) at Longmeadow High School. Please join the conversation!

Longmeadow Public Schools is pleased to provide the students and families of Longmeadow with a K-8 Student Handbook that articulates parent and student rights and responsibilities and serves as a disciplinary code of conduct. We believe that this handbook is a reflection of our deep commitment to establishing safe, supportive, and orderly learning environments where the expectations for staff and students are clear and widely understood. Additionally, we view this handbook as a reflection of the District’s firm and enduring commitment to creating schools that are welcoming, inclusive and free from discrimination, harassment and bullying. We hope that this document serves our families as a valuable reference and guide to the statutes, regulations, policies and practices that govern the operation of our schools.

The 2019-2020 Handbook is available on the WMS and LPS District Website under the Parents tab or at this link
