Gurrie Middle School: Empowering students to pursue their interests, talents and dreams.

Thank you for visiting the Gurrie website!!!

Gurrie Middle School is located in LaGrange, Illinois. We serve students in seventh and eighth grade from the communities of Hodgkins, Countryside, and LaGrange. Currently, we have 360 students enrolled in our school. Our academic offerings include studies in mathematics, science, social studies, language arts, and reading. Our language arts and reading classes are blocked together to maximize instruction and student outcomes. We offer students a world language program, with students choosing either Spanish or French. Our exploratory program includes offerings in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math), Visual, Performing, and Culinary Arts.

Students at Gurrie are also involved in an advisory program. Advising and counseling middle-school-age-children is an important task for the middle school. Young adolescents experience many changes. They need and want to have significant adults outside the family provide them with a sense of consistency and security. At Gurrie, we have an advisory program that allows all students in our school to meet regularly with a cohesive group led by two teachers who serve as advisors to the group. Advisory allows students an opportunity to form close, positive relationships with staff and other students while building trust and cooperation.

Gurrie also offers a variety of extra-curricular programs for our students. We have an intramural program and also offer a wide array of sports. Boys and girl’s basketball, volleyball, and softball are offered during different times of the year for both seventh and eighth grade. No-cut sports such as cross country, wrestling, and soccer are also available for students. Our fine arts department features a concert band, orchestra, jazz band, and choir while also producing and presenting a musical each year. Students have the ability to be involved in our Gurrie Activity Council, plus many teacher sponsored activities including Every Monday Matters (EMM), Early Act, GMS Bully Prevention Club, Speech Team, STEM Club, Stage Crew, Green Team,  Game Club, and  Art Club.

Our staff at Gurrie is dedicated to providing a quality education to all of our students in a positive, supportive environment. Our Gurrie Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) helps bring parents, staff, students, and community together. I feel a great sense of pride in being part of the Gurrie community. If you have any questions about our programs or school, please feel free to contact me at anytime.
