Otho E. Stuart Middle School

Get Ready to RISE, Raptors!

We are incredibly excited to open our doors and officially welcome our Raptors to the 20-21 school year. Every safety precaution is in place to ensure our Raptors have a positive experience while ensuring students and staff stay safe. Our teachers have been working tirelessly planning engaging lessons to ensure a positive learning experience for our Raptors. Every detail, every lesson, every activity has been meticulously planned to ensure learning take place in every format; virtual, hybrid, synchronous, and asynchronous.

Thank you for your patience and for allowing us the time to practice, plan and test our practices. These past two weeks have been an incredible gift, which will undoubtedly result in a much better and safer experience for all.

Together, we will continue to RISE!

Big picture

Stuart's National Honor Society

The Stuart National Junior Honor Society will be conducting 7th grade induction this fall. Since we were not able to hold the induction process and ceremony last spring due to safety restrictions, we will invite the 7th graders who have a cumulative GPA of 3.75 or higher AND have upheld good character. The induction process will begin in mid-September with a tentative Induction Ceremony date in mid-October.

If you have any questions during the application process, please contact Lindise Myers at lmyers@sd27j.net or at 720 685-5559.
