Elydale Middle School ~ Attend Today, Achieve Tomorrow!

Made up of fifth, sixth, and seventh grade students, Elydale Middle School is located in Ewing, Virginia, a small rural community in the southwest corner of Virginia. Students attend classes each day in a beautiful community surrounded by mountains and overlooking the White Rocks. Our school has the feel of a family and is generously supported by the community.

Each day at Elydale Middle School, students are assessed in a variety of ways. Faculty and staff continually observe students to identify learning gaps and find ways to bridge those gaps. Our school offers students a blend of technological learning and hands-on activities. Currently, we are a 1:1 device school, and students are adept at using technology to complete lessons inside the classroom and at home. Educators work diligently to create engaging lessons that keep students involved and interested in learning.

Elydale Middle School is a unique school because of the way adults collaborate to help EVERY student achieve success. Faculty and staff are concentrated on student growth and development. Instruction is targeted to build on student strengths and overcome areas of weakness. We build meaningful relationships to ensure students know they are loved and supported. Together, we work to ensure a prosperous future for every student we encounter.
