Welcome to Great Valley Middle School

Great Valley Middle School’s fundamental purpose is to provide an outstanding academic experience in a safe, positive and caring learning environment. Our faculty and staff are committed and dedicated to the specific needs of middle level students and their families.  Throughout our students’ time in middle school we want them to have opportunities to explore, be challenged, and develop the intrinsic skills to be independent and successful beyond their middle school years. 

Our school has a long tradition of excellence and earned its fourth Blue Ribbon designation in 2017.  We are honored to be one of a handful of schools across our nation earning this nationally recognized distinction multiple times.  To this day, our middle school team continues to contribute to this legacy of excellence by creating engaging and developmentally appropriate experiences while being cognizant and supportive of the social, emotional, and behavioral needs of the children in our care. 

We have great students, an outstanding faculty and staff, and extensive support from our families and community.

We consider it an honor and privilege to invest in the lives of our students, and are committed to partnering with our families and our community to create positive and lasting memories while with us at Great Valley Middle School.
