The faculty, staff and administration of Vernon Center Middle School are devoted to helping every student achieve his/her maximum individual potential in a supportive environment. We recognize that this goal requires the collective best efforts of school personnel, the student, the parents/guardians and the community at large. Our staff and programs aid in the transition of students from middle school to high school. We offer programs and an environment that provides opportunities for students to participate in 21st century learning and for sound academic, social, artistic, physical, and emotional growth. We embrace the values of safety, organization, achievement, respect, and responsibility.


Mascot: Eagles; Motto: "Freedom With Responsibility"
School Colors: Blue and White

Our school was opened as a new building in 1966. We presently house grades 6, 7, and 8 with an enrollment of approximately 650 students. We have 86 certified staff members and 44 non-certified staff.  

VCMS sees itself as an active part of many communities and we take our role in these communities very seriously. Each enriches the academic and social consciousness of our students and helps us develop the whole child.


Vernon Center Middle School is a Positive Behavioral Support school. PBS is designed to help school teams form behavioral and discipline systems that support student learning and social development. Nationally, PBS is currently practiced in over 8,000 schools. PBS is not an initiative, but a set of problem solving strategies and processes. Building upon existing strengths, school teams create well defined systems, use effective practices along with data centered evaluation methods to reshape their communities and help students achieve academic and social competence. Introducing, modeling, and reinforcing positive social behavior is an important part of a student’s educational experience. VCMS believes that teaching behavioral expectations through Core Values and rewarding students for following them is a much more positive and successful approach.


Vernon Public Schools Mission Statement

The Vernon Public Schools, in partnership with family and community, is committed to provide a quality education, with
high expectations, in a safe environment where all students become independent learners and productive contributors to society.
