Florence Middle School

Home of the Eagles


Each and every day, the faculty and staff at Florence Middle School strive to positively influence, both academically and socially,  the lives of your children. Our goal is to  prepare them to be productive individuals, both inside and outside of the classroom.  The behaviors and habits they begin in middle school carry over to their high school lives and beyond; so it is our desire to help them develop beneficial behaviors.

Our philosophy comes from former Indianapolis Colts' coach Tony Dungy - "No excuses. No explanations. Whatever it takes!"   Our team of teachers and staff would like to recruit the parents and community to join us in doing whatever it takes to educate our students for success!

Principal, Ed.S.

  • Back the Blue

    “ Help us support the Florence Police Department!!!! Homecoming this year is all about “Backing the Blue”!!! Starting today, every dollar you donate buys one foot of duct tape ——to tape your favorite principal to the wall during next week’s pep rally!!! If we raise over $1000, all three principals will be taped to the wall!!!! Bring your money and buy your feet of duct tape outside the library every morning until next Tuesday. All money raised goes to the Florence Police Department to purchase new body armor for those who protect us each and every day. You can buy as many feet of duct tape as you want!!!!” Or, go to gofundme.com/28jjm6b8 to help FMS Back the Blue.
