Congratulations Aaliyah! | Project 351 Ambassador

Pickering 8th grade student Aaliyah Cleghorn was one of three middle school students from Lynn Public Schools to be named ambassadors to the 2013 Project 351 program.

Project 351 celebrates the power of young people as a force for positive change in their communities and our Commonwealth. Through service, leadership development, enrichment, and friendship with a statewide community of peers, Ambassadors build skills and confidence, explore issues, embrace leadership, and motivate a lifetime of service.

Welcome To The Pickering Middle School

Our middle school encompasses grades six through eight and focuses on the learning needs of early adolescents. We emphasize the acquisition of basic skills and application of these skills for academic success. Throughout our students’ three years at Pickering, we support them as they develop into life-long learners.
Pickering Middle School utilizes the interdisciplinary team approach at each grade level. Each student is assigned to a cluster which is divided into four sections.

These groups rotate among the four content area teachers (ELA, Math, Science, and Social Studies). The purpose of this approach is to promote communication, coordination, and cooperation among subject area teachers. We offer elective classes in Music, Art, Health, PE, Instructional Technology, and Fitness. We also offer 5th major classes in foreign language and strategic reading.

Our History

Originally children from Wyoma Square used a chapel on Auburn Street as a school until seventy students moved to a newly built schoolhouse on Boston Street in the year 1770. Miss Nana Pickering was the first principal, and the school was named after her in 1884 when an addition was completed.

When educational studies developed the idea of a "Junior High" system, Pickering was the first to be built in the city. On December 6,1917, a cold Tuesday morning, Pickering opened, costing $236,000 to build and $58,000 to furnish (A fancy house can cost that much today and $8000 might furnish one room!). In 1927, a Columbia University group of educators recommended an addition to be built. After World War II, the addition, including the gym, the west wing, and the Sisson School next door were completed.

Pickering’s Motto
“Pride in our past, confidence in our future”, reflects our belief that we provide our students with the necessary tools for success as they continue on their path of life-long learning.
