Welcome to Hinsdale Middle School

Message from the Principal

Hinsdale Middle School, the largest school in District 181, is proud to have been named a Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education. We believe our Blue Ribbon Award reflects our commitment to our students’ growth not only intellectually, but also as emerging young adults and community members. We promise parents to treat our students as we would treat our own children—with empathy, support and boundless enthusiasm. When they enter the doors of HMS, students find a curriculum that goes above and beyond state and national standards; a rich encore program; and extracurricular options that help students find and develop individual interests and passions. Go Spartans!

Good Morning Spartans! Each morning, after The Pledge of Allegiance, we will observe 15 seconds of silence for personal reflection.

COMEDY CLUB What did the triangle say to the circle? You're pointless!! It is jokes like that that brought Comedy Club back this week! Come to Comedy Club Wednesday from 3 - 3:45 in room 208. If you have any questions ask Mr. Dzija.

DEBATE CLUB Capital punishment by firing squad was legalized in Utah in March. Is this constitutional or does this constitute cruel and unusual punishment? To research this question, come to Debate Club Thursday, from 3 - 3:45 in room 208. Freeze pops will be provided! If you have any questions ask Mr. Dzija.

SHOW CHOIR 2015-16 HMS is getting ready to cast our two Show Choirs for next school year! Sixth and 7th graders interested in finding out more about the auditions and performances for these groups are invited to attend an important informational meeting TOMORROW, Wednesday, May 6, from 3-4 in Room 124. See you then, and bring your jazz hands!
