WELCOME TO MACOPIN MIDDLE SCHOOL
If you search the dictionary for the definition of middle school, you will find the following: “A school at a level between elementary and high school, typically including grades five through eight”. We are in a unique situation at Macopin School in that we have 600 students in just two grade levels, 7th and 8th. Our students come from six neighborhood elementary schools and a few private schools in the area. Middle School students are at a time in their lives where they are searching to discover who they really are and where exactly they fit in society. As a result, it takes a special educator to understand this whole middle school child. It is our job at Macopin School to, not only deliver a rigorous academic program, but also to mold the students on a social and emotional level. Our staff understands this difficult task and is always ready for the challenge.
The countless positive experiences that are a part of Macopin School enable our students to develop a better understanding of themselves, their values, and their place in the world around them. In order for this to happen, they are taught to be good citizens. We have rules and regulations that have been established for this purpose and all are expected to follow these procedures. We are very proud of our Advisory Program. Our Character Education Team have developed a program that is designed to teach character building in all of our students. One of our school goals is to reduce existing bullying problems and prevent the development of new ones as well as to help our students establish better peer relationships. They learn to accept each other's individual differences.
Macopin has an extremely active Parent Teacher Association. They are dedicated to making this a great school for their children. It is by working together as students, parents, staff, teachers, and administrators that the Macopin Family will continue towards our goal of giving West Milford’s children the skills and knowledge that they need to be successful in this challenging world.
