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.
Change to School Calendar
PCPS had to close school on Friday, October 12 as a result of the power outages that occurred because of the high winds that came with the remnants of Hurricane Michael. The school calendar previously had December 19 as the last day before winter break. December 20 will now be the last school day before winter break and it will be an early dismissal day. If we miss additional days after winter break due to inclement weather, January 21, January 28 and February 15 will be considered for use as make-up days. Thank you for your flexibility as we continue to work to meet state requirements and ensure our students receive as much instruction as possible.
