About Middle School South

History of Middle School South

GMSS opened its doors to learning in 1992. It became the third middle school constructed in the Gahanna-Jefferson School District. 

MSS strives to create an atmosphere where individuals develop to their academic potential, as well as their human potential. We are excited about the opportunity to meet you, and to work with you and your child.

Welcome to Middle School South!

I am very proud to serve as the principal and on behalf of the entire staff, we are excited to meet all of our students and families.  GMSS is a special place with an amazing staff that will care for your children. We focus on ROAR at middle school south and work to grow the whole child, both academically and social emotionally.


Middle school is an exciting time with a tremendous amount of growth. It is our goal to build lifelong relationships and partnerships with our families as we work together to support you and your children as they navigate middle school.

We have an active PTO and invite you to be a part of our school community.

Let’s make it a great year!
