Virginia Beach Middle originally opened in 1951 as Virginia Beach High School. We have a rich history and proudly serve a long-standing, diverse and supportive community. Our students excel in academics and athletics as well as the visual and performing arts. We pride ourselves in providing a safe and accepting environment in which children become well rounded, confident, and successful adolescents.
During their time here, our students will work alongside caring and capable teachers, staff and administrators while tackling a rigorous instructional program. We set high expectations for our Seahawks, and we see them excel through their academics, their leadership and in their service to others.
Virginia Beach Middle offers many exciting academic and extracurricular opportunities for our students. We encourage students and families to take advantage of all the programs and events at our school in order to make the most of the middle school experience.
We are looking forward to a wonderful year.
