Welcome to SMMS

The mission of South Milwaukee Middle School is to empower learners to grow academically, socially and emotionally by developing and supporting independent thinkers and problem solvers who strive for excellence in the classroom and community. Our staff is dedicated to creating learning environments that promote growth, challenge, and success.  Our curriculum provides students the opportunity to be challenged in an environment that supports their growth. South Milwaukee Middle School is extremely proud of our students and staff and we look forward to further developing partnerships with our community.

South Milwaukee Middle School supports this idea by working with parents through our Parent Advisory Council and in a volunteer capacity. Your efforts and your time are valuable and appreciated.

Stuff the Bus!
Stuff the Bus starts on Monday, November 4th. Our school district is working together to collect canned and boxed food items for the annual Stuff the Bus event. The food items collected will be donated to South Milwaukee Human Concerns to help people in our community. We will collect items during your 1st hour class through November 15th. Our goal is to collect 500 items. Please bring in food items to help our community and show our SM spirit. The first hour class who brings in the most items will receive delicious donuts from Mr. Hendrickson.
