Principal’s Welcome Letter

​Terman Middle School welcomes you to the 2016-17 school year. This handbook serves to provide our families and students with important information about our school. Please review the contents with your student before school begins, then keep it accessible forfuture reference. If you have questions, please feel free to call the school office for clarification at 650-856-9810.

The entire Terman community is looking forward to a great year of academic and personal growth, challenges, and accomplishments. We serve a diverse group of about 730 students in grades 6-8. Our support staff of over 70 teachers, paraprofessionals, custodians, food service workers and administrative staff all work with your students to achieve high academic and social standards and to develop personal and community responsibility. With active parent participation, we work to make each day a positive experience for your middle school student at Terman.

Personal and academic growth as well as building skills in self advocacy during the middle school years prepare your student for high school and beyond. Our learning approach is to offer a balanced instructional program in a team setting that emphasizes academic integrity while making an emotional connection with the students as they continue to develop social skills. In order to succeed, students, families and staff must work together. We are committed to supporting the whole child and invite you to join in this effort to ensure innovation, creative thinking, intellectual curiosity, academic excellence, thoughtful change, and good citizenship.

We are glad you and your student(s) are members of the Terman community and look forward to a wonderful year.
