GMA Summer Bridge Program

Students referred to Greenville Middle's Summer Bridge Program should now sign up online to attend the program. The purpose of the program is to provide additional academic support to prepare students for the next grade level and to support learning loss from the pandemic. For more information, reach out to Randy Jenkins at 355-5617.


2021-22 Transportation Forms Now Available

In preparation for 2021-2022, we need to know if your student's transportation method will change for the new school year.

If the method of transportation is going to change, we need you to complete the 2021-2022 Transportation Request Form (English | Spanish) and return it to Ms. Coleman, our Guidance Clerk, as soon as possible. This applies to current virtual and brick-and-mortar students.

If the transportation method is not going to change for next year, you do not need to complete the form.


Is Your Address Up-To-Date?

As we are preparing for the next school year's registration, it is most important that we have your correct address information on file. This determines the school your student will attend.

Also, keep in mind that the final report cards are mailed at the end of the school year. All address changes require proper documentation (two proofs of residency) to be presented to the school. If you have moved or will be moving, please email Sherry Coleman, our Registrar, by email at shecoleman@greenville.k12.sc.us or phone at 864-355-5604.

6th Grade Tdap Requirement

Attention all 6th grade parents: South Carolina law states that ALL students are required to have the Tdap vaccine BEFORE they enter 7th grade. This means that your 6th grader should get the vaccination during his/her annual doctor visit this year. The Tdap vaccine can be obtained at your primary health care provider, the Health Department, or various walk-in clinics.

Please make sure your student has the Tdap vaccine this year and have the vaccine certificate sent to school as soon as it is completed. If your child already had the Tdap vaccine, please send a copy of the immunization form into school to ensure that we have it on record. Your child will not be able to attend the 7th grade until we have this form on record at school.

Thank you in advance for your help. Please feel free to contact GMA's School Nurse, Catherine Manske, with any questions.


Magnet Immersion Students at Greenville Middle Academy 

Immersion students who enrolled in the GCS K8 Virtual Program for the 2020-2021 school year will maintain their magnet slots at their magnet schools for the 2021-2022 school year.  Upon re-enrollment, these students will be scheduled to take an assessment in their target language of study to determine how the school can best support their re-entry into the immersion programs.  However, if an immersion student plans to re-enroll in the GCS K8 Virtual Program for the 2021-2022 school year, the student will forfeit his/her magnet spot.  Upon any subsequent return to a brick and mortar school setting, the student would attend their home-based school.
