Mission Statement

At Saline Middle School, we believe that middle level education must respect the unique developmental issues facing early adolescents. These students are experiencing multiple changes causing them to face many life changing challenges. As educators, we feel it is our responsibility to educate the whole child, not just teaching information, but teaching life lessons that will assist them in becoming successful adults.


Our Science Olympians at their Regionals. Congratulations on a great season.
