Welcome to Sauk Rapids-Rice Middle School. We like to say that our school is the middle of the STORM! At SRRMS we take great pride in educating children and young adults during the adolescent years of their lives. We subscribe to the old adage that it certainly does “take a village to raise a child.”
Over 100 staff members collaborate and utilize differing expertise to ensure that each child get the best educational service possible. This would be very similar to a team of doctors that collaborate to provide the very best care possible for patients. This model has proven to be very successful for our children, families, and community through the years. That said, because we operate as a learning community, we are constantly evaluating our practices, seeking valid research, and communicating with stakeholders to ensure that we remain on the cutting edge of educational decisions and student learning.
Our school utilizes the middle school model and includes important teaming elements that provide students a “school-within-a-school” experience and connects them with a specific team of teachers and students. Each child is also assigned to a student service counselor and an advisor. Both contacts help to provide academic and social-emotional support. We also offer a full compliment of extra curricular activities for students to participate.
There are many other features of our organization to highlight, but in the end, we are fiercely committed to the development of the whole child. Please don’t hesitate to contact our office if you have any questions or inquiries about our school or district.

Is your child entering middle school this year? We know this can be an exciting yet stressful time. These feelings are intensified if this is your first time as a middle school parent. One important thing to know is you are probably more nervous than your child.
Unfortunately, there are many misperceptions about middle school. We have all heard the story of someone getting stuffed in a locker or having to eat lunch on the floor because nobody will let you sit at their table, but in all of our combined years in middle school we have yet to see either of these happen. A good piece of advice is if you see a show or commercial that portrays middle school you can probably safely assume that is not how it works in the real world.
We have compiled a list of tips that will help you and your child master the transition to middle school. | Read More
