Our School: 

Vel Phillips Middle School opened for the 2023-2024 school year, welcoming students from the former Merrill Middle and Webster Stanley Middle School communities. Our state-of-the-art facility was meticulously designed to provide a nurturing and stimulating learning environment for students in their crucial transitional years. With spacious classrooms equipped with the latest technology and modern spaces that allow for and encourage collaboration and creativity our middle school aims to foster a love for learning and promote academic excellence. We are committed to creating a safe and inclusive space where students can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. Vel Phillips also complements its high academic standards with a variety of co-curricular activities and community events. Join us at our new middle school as we embark on an exciting educational journey together.
