Welcome to Martin Meylin!
Martin Meylin Middle School is literally and figuratively nestled between Hans Herr Elementary School and L-S High School. It's home to nearly 650 students in grades six through eight. The school was built in 1967 as one of the first to incorporate team teaching, a practice that continues today.

Growing and Learning
The three years that students spend at Martin Meylin Middle School are filled with growth and discovery. Students explore a range of new subjects, including foreign language and technology education. They also have an opportunity to nurture their interests through school-supported activities.
It's not your average homeroom! Students spend the first half hour of each day in ROOTS groups, getting to know one another and participating in projects and team-building exercises.
Each grade is divided into two teams, each with a group of dedicated, collaborative teachers for core subjects. It's our way of bridging the gap between cozy elementary school classes and the block-based high school program.
The District's band, chorus, and orchestra programs expand in middle school with concert ensembles, competitions, opportunities to march in parades, and a new middle school jazz band.
Each December, the community looks forward to the Martin Meylin Middle School musical. For students, it's a chance to get on stage, or backstage, to indulge a love of theatre.
School-sponsored sports begin in seventh grade, and many students join junior high soccer, football, field hockey, cheerleading, cross country, basketball, wrestling, and track & field teams.
