Welcome from Mr. Sears, Shore Middle School Principal

Welcome to the Shore Middle School web page! 

Shore is located in northeast Ohio and has approximately 590 students and 80 staff members. Shore's mission is to provide the academic, technological, and social skills essential for all students to become critical thinkers and lifelong learners in a diverse and ever-changing society.

The Shore staff is dedicated to providing a learning environment which stresses the importance of respect for self, others, and our school. To that end we have implemented the Olweus Bullying Program and have an active group of Student Ambassadors that work in our building throughout the year with students and staff. We are also excited about the work that is happening with our Friends of Rachel Club, which came out of the Rachel's Challenge assembly the fall of 2011. Sustaining the message of promoting good citizenship through kindness and compassion toward others is vitally important to the Shore community.

Technology is available at Shore to allow students to use their own iPads. Teachers also have access to interactive SMART boards in most classrooms for general instructional use. Our teachers incorporate technology to enhance their instruction and provide quality instruction to meet the individual needs of their students.

Shore offers students many social opportunities in which we encourage students to participate. Many students choose to participate in outside events such as interscholastic athletics, intramurals, a variety of clubs (art, ski, garden, pep, NJHS, student council), and school improvement teams. Opportunities exist for all students to participate as long as they remain eligible to do so. Students also attend dances, help with community service projects, and assist in building improvement initiatives.

Communication is extremely important to us. Please check back to this site regularly as the content is always changing, newsletters are posted weekly, and staff web pages are frequently updated.
