Student Handbook


Haverford Middle School, in partnership with our community, will provide a welcoming, safe learning environment where all children are valued, challenged, and empowered to:

  • Achieve their highest academic and individual potential
  • Discover their self-worth
  • Recognize and accept differences in others
  • Act with integrity and respect
  • Contribute responsibly to their school and community

We have prepared this handbook to introduce our programs, activities, and policies to all involved in our Haverford Middle School community.

We are committed to meeting the needs and interests of students in the transitional years of sixth, seventh, and eighth grades. Students, staff and facilities are organized for effective instruction. Extra-curricular activities are designed to enrich the experiences of the middle school student.

We look forward to creating a partnership with you in order to encourage the academic, social, and emotional growth of your child during these formative middle school years!
