Principal/Mission

On behalf of our entire learning community, welcome to Hocker Grove Middle School, home of the Eagles! We have tremendous pride in our school and wear the red and black as a representation of that pride. We are Hocker Grove!

Student academic success is a top priority. We work alongside parents and the community to ensure success for all by providing support for any students who require it through extra time, varied learning opportunities, or other resources. We also believe that learning can and should happen outside of the traditional classroom environment, which is why we offer a robust co-curricular program including the arts, athletics and an array of clubs and service organizations. Students are encouraged to connect with their school through participation in one of the many programs offered. 

Our school's mission and vision statements are designed to help us focus on why we all come to school each day. I encourage you to read these statements carefully and join me in embracing them to make Hocker Grove, the premier middle school in the state of Kansas. 

Our Mission is to promote unity and celebrate individuality while cultivating creativity and the academic, social and technological skills necessary to persevere and thrive in a rapidly changing world. 

Our Vision is to inspire each other to succeed in life. 

Best wishes for a great school year.  It is truly an exciting time to be an Eagle!
