A Great Place to Learn and Work


Gilbert H. Hood Middle School, in partnership with students, families, and the community, provides a challenging and enriching academic program in a safe and supportive learning environment, to meet the unique needs of early adolescents, so they will reach or exceed all of our middle school learning expectations, and become responsible and productive members of the community.
