Strong Vincent Middle School began a new chapter of its storied history on August 28, 2017 as it welcomed over 850 new middle school students. The former Strong Vincent High School was transitioned into a true middle school thanks to the creation of Erie High School.
Our Strong Vincent educational staff consists of over 75 employees. Our sixth grade team consists of ten CORE teachers (English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies) and three Learning Support teachers. Seventh and eighth grades both have teams of eight CORE teachers with four Learning Support teachers.
Additionally, we have an Honors Academy for students in grades seven and eight. Traditionally, all students in the honors program are advanced, or proficient on PSSA, received a teacher recommendation, and earn above average grades in their core academic areas. Many of our Honors Academy students will enroll in our magnet high school Northwest Pennsylvania Collegiate Academy. Currently, we have approximately 175 students in honors at SV. Students may be recommeded for an honors placement in sixth grade by their fifth grade team. These students remain in the regular sixth grade pods.
In addition to traditional and honors level courses, we offer special education services for all students with Individualized Educational Plans (IEPs). SVMS offers specialized programs in the areas of emotional support, autistic support, life-skills, and learning support.
Our current enrollment for 2019-20 school year is 833 students.
We have an active Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) who meets on the second Tuesday of every month in Room 103. (6:15 pm) All parents are welcome and encouraged to participate in this wonderful group.
