About First Avenue Middle School

The First Avenue Middle School community continually develops the distinctive characteristics of the “First Avenue Experience”: an ability to meet rigorous academic standards through the design of high quality work, a passion to learn, an ability and willingness to think creatively to solve the challenges of the 21st century, a strong sense of identity and voice, and a highly developed sense of personal and social responsibility and leadership fostered by real-world applications.
 
We’re proud to be named an #ERPHonorRoll school, which recognizes high-performing, achievement gap-closing schools across the nation. The Educational Results Partnership Honor Roll, sponsored by CBEE, is the only school recognition program the state using student achievement outcomes as the criteria. The Honor Roll is a valuable resource for all schools to identify successful peers and learn about best practices that are improving student achievement.
