Welcome to Harding Middle School

Harding Middle School has received the 2016 Making Middle Grades Work Top Performing School Recognition for exceeding all schools nationally on the Southern Regional Education Board 2016 MMGW Student and Teacher Surveys.

Harding Middle School strives to offer a challenging, engaging, and relevant learning environment for students in Grades 5, 6, 7, and 8. State of the art classrooms and computer labs, along with rigorous curriculum backed by the Success for All Foundation and John Hopkins University provide for a solid foundation as students prepare for high school and beyond.  Extracurricular and leadership opportunities abound in academics, fine arts, and athletics. 
We believe that every child, at every level of academic performance,
can achieve excellence.
