Beginning May 31, 2016, a construction crew will start tearing down the Sam Parker Gym located on the Florence Middle School Campus.

The decision to do away with the gym was made after much thought and planning. Critical to the decision was that the building has been condemned. Restoration of the gym was not feasible due to the exorbitant cost.

The Rankin County School District understands that for many former Florence students the Sam Parker Gym holds many precious memories, and we want the citizens of Florence to know that we considered all options before making this tough decision.

Each and every day, the faculty and staff at Florence Middle School strive to positively influence, both academically and socially,  the lives of your children. Our goal is to  prepare them to be productive individuals, both inside and outside of the classroom.  The behaviors and habits they begin in middle school carry over to their high school lives and beyond; so it is our desire to help them develop beneficial behaviors.

Our philosophy comes from former Indianapolis Colts' coach Tony Dungy - "No excuses. No explanations. Whatever it takes!"   Our team of teachers and staff would like to recruit the parents and community to join us in doing whatever it takes to educate our students for success!
