Glacial Drumlin School opened its doors in 2008. As the newest school in the district, it was built as a 21st century school with a focus on integrating instructional technology across the curriculum.  It also has a geothermal heating and cooling system, reinforcing the value of energy conservation.  The school was appropriately named for the “drumlin” or hill formed by the movement of glaciers, which is unique to our local geography. This middle school serves students in grades 5 through 8 with a total enrollment of 850 students in 2014.  We proudly call ourselves the “Red Hawks,” named after the Red Tailed Hawk, a popular bird that inhabits the fields surrounding the school.  

The instructional philosophy of Glacial Drumlin is based on the middle school concept.  Teachers use a block schedule and work within teams to better serve students in smaller groups across core subjects.  Students balance their academic program with a healthy exposure to encore classes such as computers, world language, art, technology education, multi-media, physical education, and family and consumer economics.  Students also have opportunities to develop their musical talents with offerings in band, choir, orchestra, and general music.  

Our co-curricular offerings include opportunities like Math Team, Science Olympiad, Spelling and Geography Bees, and Yahara River Writers.  Extra-curricular offerings include music offerings in Jazz Band, Show Choir, and Sizzling Strings.  Athletic team sports are offered in volleyball, basketball, cross-country, and track.  Other opportunities include Student Council, Upstander’s Club, and Destination Imagination.  We pride ourselves on having an inclusive student philosophy that promotes participation for all students.

We strive for a positive school climate with a strong emphasis on teaching students about the values of acceptance, belonging, and equity to better prepare them as citizens in school and the greater community.  Our discipline response focuses on upholding the expectation for a safe school environment with opportunities to learn from our mistakes through restorative practices.  We practice being responsible, respectful, and safe.  

Our school vision is to build a 21st century community of learners where all students are motivated to find their purpose, to clearly see their worth, and to realize their full potential.  We invite you to learn more about Glacial Drumlin School and to join us in making our school vision a reality.
