  • Poquoson Middle School serves a total population of almost 500 students in grades 6, 7, and 8. Our high expectations are carried out throughout the building within our staff and students. Poquoson Middle School promotes a climate conducive to success based on safety, accountability, and a close partnership with parents and the community. A typical day at Poquoson Middle School consists of seven periods. In addition to Math, English, Science, Social Studies, and Health and Physical Education, students may be exposed to reading and math support, foreign language (French and Spanish), Technology Education, Band, Chorus, Drama, and Art.

  • School Calendar Update

    The school calendar for next school year (2020-2021) will include a post-Labor Day start to school so the calendar will be very similar to the current school year calendar. The 20-21 calendar will be brought to the School Board to approve this winter. School division staff will continue to work with representatives from all of the school divisions who send students to the New Horizons Regional Education Center (NHREC) to determine if a change to a pre-Labor Day school start should occur for the 2021-2022 school year. The results of the school divisions surveys are being used to inform the decision making process.  PCPS had a good return rate on the survey that was provided to the school community.  The results of the survey can be found online at this link  https://www.poquoson.k12.va.us/Page/248. A decision about the 2021-2022 calendar will be made during the spring of this school year.
