Welcome

Ypsilanti Community Middle School (YCMS) offers targeted instructional support for 6th graders, ensuring purposeful, exploratory learning. In 7th grade, all students follow a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) focused program. In 8th grade, the ACTech drives an Arts, Communication, Technology program. This enriching, varied approach prepares students for high school where they can choose a path in ACTech or STEMM Middle College (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, Manufacturing).

Weekly Updates

Please check the Parent News page for weekly updates, middle school sports info, and other important information that every parent needs to know.

 

There are several ways to support your student and YCMS. Here are just a few:
 

Develop a partnership with your child's teachers and school staff

1. Meet your child's teachers and have open communication with them
2. Get to know who who's at your school- there are plenty of staff members, other than teachers, that can support your child
3. Attend parent-teacher conferences and keep in touch with your child's teachers
4. Stay informed- read school newsletters and emails, check out your school's website, check your child's Powerschool account, and ask your child about his/her day

Get involved with your child's school


1. Join the PTO- being a part of this group helps you connect with teachers, other parents, and community members

2. Share your time and talents- volunteer to help at school events,
read in classrooms, or help with small group activities

3. Participate in school fundraisers

4. Attend school board meetings- this gives you the opportunity to provide your input and lets you see how the school board makes decisions that affect your community’s schools
