Eighth Grade Ceremony 2022


Sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students attend Lawton C. Johnson Summit Middle School in a beautiful 1920's building that has been completely renovated with updated classrooms, labs, and equipment.

The Middle School provides a supportive and stimulating environment during the years of early adolescence. Comprehensive instruction in Math, Reading, Science, Social Studies, and Language Arts builds on the skills acquired in elementary school.

Opportunities to explore a variety of offerings begin in sixth grade and continue throughout the middle school experience. Latin, French, Spanish, and Mandarin Chinese are offered beginning in sixth grade. Art, General Music, Drama, Forensics, Writing, Technology Education, Keyboarding, Reading/Study Skills, Public Speaking, Problem Solving, and Computer Applications are taught in exploratory cycles.

A vigorous and successful intramural and interscholastic sports program is provided, along with an extensive selection of school clubs appealing to a wide range of interests. The school has consistently produced winners in various county and state academic competitions.

It is our mission as a school community to provide a safe, supportive, and stimulating environment, where diversity is celebrated, uniqueness of the individual is valued, and high academic standards are maintained to ensure success for all students.
