Mission Statement
Galesburg-Augusta Community Schools will empower all students to be productive and responsible citizens.

About the School
Galesburg-Augusta Middle School is perched atop the tallest point in the Village of Augusta, surrounded by 100 acres of wooded trails and open common space. The Middle School was built in 1977 and is dedicated to the future citizens of the community. Our current enrollment is approximately 360 students in grades 4-7.

G-AMS proudly boasts 40 professional staff members from Administrative, Secretarial, G-AEA, Para-Professionals, Building Aides, Custodial and Food Service groups/organizations. We as a staff are committed to fulfilling the district mission: to teach the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to be a productive and ethical citizen.

The vision of the district is to be the preferred small-school district in the region. We strive for this vision by creating an educational program that develops productive knowledge, skills, and attitudes in every area - academics, athletics, the arts, and social/emotional development.

We host or participate in various educational and social activities for our students throughout the year. Events at G-AMS have included: 5th Grade Camp, 8th Grade Trip, Dances, Talent Show, Film Festival, Gryphon Place “Gatekeepers Program”, Prevention Works “JumpStart”, 5th/8th Science Fair, Career Day, Think College Early, Jump Rope for Heart, numerous Field Trips, Field Day, Halloween Parade, Girls on the Run, and much more. Our Student Council organization (StuCo) in conjunction with our parent organization (PASS) hosts many of the productions/events listed through funds directly raised by the student body.

We at G-AMS recognize that school is an integral part of the communities in which we serve. It is vital that there exists an active, voluntary, and cooperative effort among staff, parents, students and the community. To ensure the lines of communication are open, please continue to utilize this website as a location to bridge any communication gaps that may exist and to strengthen those already established.

We encourage you to visit Galesburg-Augusta Middle School, and if you have any questions, please direct them to our principal, Shana Wiese, at 269-484-2020 or by email.
