Our goal at Sidney Middle School is to empower our students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to become productive citizens.
This is our "Raider Pride". High standards and high expectations for each student in regard to academic performance, extracurricular participation, and behavior are the foundation of our Raider Pride.
Sidney Middle School encourages all students to be involved in as many extracurricular activities as possible. Data shows that the more activities students are involved in - the better they do academically.
