Middle

The middle school educational experience seeks to provide for the intellectual, physical, emotional, social and cultural needs of students in grades 6-8. Allowing for a smooth transition from childhood to adolescence and from middle to high school is a priority.

Suffolk Public Schools has four middle schools: Forest Glen, John F. Kennedy, John Yeates, and King’s Fork. Middle schools begin classes at 7:25 am and end at 2:00 pm. The schools operate on an alternate day schedule, link here for the schedule.
