About Us

  • Welcome to VCMS! 

    Our school mission is to "Provide Engaging Instruction that is Focused on Learning, in a Safe Environment, where Everyone Matters."

    We believe that every student, every parent, every teacher, and every staff member matters and each holds a special place within our VCMS family.

    Middle School can seem intimidating, however we view middle school as a great time of transition.  It can be exciting and rewarding to shine a light for students to grow from an elementary mindset to a secondary mindset, to help them think more critically and globally, to be become more self-directed and collaborative, and to use their creativity to become problem solvers and innovators.   

    Veronica E. Connor Middle School opened in September 1969. Our school is comprised of over 700 students in grades 6, 7, and 8.  We have over 80 faculty members and 20 support staff.

    We adhere to the NYS requirements for a Middle School Program and offer programs in core subjects (ELA, Social Studies, Math and Science), special areas such as Family and Consumer Sciences, Visual Arts, Physical Education, Technology, Music, Performing Groups (Orchestra, Band, Chorus), Spanish, French, and Health. In our 8th grade, students are selected to participate in Regents Algebra, Regents Earth Science and or Studio in Art.  Each Regents class earns a high school credit.  We encourage all students to make the most out of their three years at the middle school.  We offer a wide variety of extra-curricular activities from clubs to multiple athletic teams for both boys and girls.
