Welcome To The Pickering Middle School

Pickering Middle School is a positive learning community staffed by talented, dedicated, caring individuals. The faculty works collaboratively to offer our students every opportunity to learn and grow as individuals. We encourage students to reach their fullest potential through effort, hard work and determination.

Parent support plays an integral part in forming the culture at Pickering. We encourage parents to take an active role in their child’s education. This environment of cooperative support helps students develop academically and socially. Working together, we strive to ensure that each student will acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to become lifelong learners.

We encourage our students to always ‘Dream Big’ and ‘Work Hard’

Principal Ritterhas

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.

The Pickering Middle School's start time is 7:45 AM and the school day ends at 2:30 PM. When the doors open at 7:45, students are expected to go to their homerooms. Students arriving after 8:00 AM are considered late and are to report to the office. If a student arrives late, he/she must have a note stating the reason for being late, otherwise, detention will be assigned.

Mission
At Pickering Middle School we are committed to providing all students with an equitable opportunity for optimal achievement in all academic areas, encouraging social responsibility and respect towards others, and helping students develop into lifelong learners.

Vision
To prepare students to think analytically and to apply their skills and knowledge to future learning and personal success.

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.
