About Our School

Central Middle School

Central Middle School is located just outside of Quincy Center at 875 Hancock Street. In 2013, we welcomed students into a state-of-the-art new building. Technology was thoughtfully integrated into many aspects, assuring students have access to the training they need to compete and succeed in their future. Included in the building are a 484-seat auditorium, wireless internet access, new computer labs and more.

A dedicated staff provides quality education to over 600 students in grades six, seven, and eight. In addition, to teaching students from the Merrymount, Beechwood Knoll, Bernazzani, and Wollaston neighborhoods, Central services gifted and talented students in the city's Advanced Placement Center (APC) housed at Central.

Message from the Principal:

Middle School is a place that provides special programs to guide your academic and personal growth. It is an educational experience that trestles your elementary and high school experience. Its mission is to personalize education for emerging adolescents in a special atmosphere. At Central, we believe that it is the strong commitment to high academic achievement, excellence in teaching, respecting human differences, and establishing collaborative community connections that create this unique atmosphere.
