Welcome to

The Gridley Middle School Website






Gridley Middle School values each student's potential to achieve.  Our Highly Qualified teachers are committed to meeting the needs of our middle school students.  We are a top performing school as evidenced by our AIMS test results, Parent Satisfaction ratings and Welcoming School Climate. The staff at Gridley believes in the teaming concept because it enhances communication and curriculum integration while preventing students from "falling through the cracks". We offer Honors classes in all of our core subjects including Algebra for 8th grade students.  We also have an exceptional Fine Arts program offering Band, Guitar and Orchestra and Drama at all grade levels.  We have a number of after school programs including greenhouse, garden and chicken coop club, interscholastic sports program, book club and chess club.  Raytheon has partnered with us to offer our Virtual Reality computer class. Gridley's innovation will continue to have our students leading the district!
