Middle School Calendar

Message from the Principal

Thank you for visiting the Archbold Middle School website!  I hope you find this resource helpful.  AMS is a special place for students to learn and grow.  We have a strong COMMUNITY of students and staff for the 2016-2017 school year!  It is inspiring to visit the classrooms and be involved in the challenging and motivating lessons that our students are engaged in every day.  No matter the specific role a TEAM member plays; from cook, to teacher, to custodian, all are committed to providing every student with an extremely positive school experience.

- Matt Shields, AMS Principal
