The mission of Seneca Middle School is to develop responsible, competent, and productive lifelong learners by providing challenging and meaningful educational experiences in cooperation with the home, community and business.


Officer Jesus De Luna Soto
After giving long-time and well-respected school resource officer John Pearson many best wishes in retirement, Seneca Middle School welcomed a new resource officer into the fold. Jesus De Luna Soto, the 2016 Clemson University Officer of the Year, worked with the Clemson University Police Department for two years prior to making the move to the Oconee County Sheriff’s office to serve daily at Seneca Middle School.

De Luna Soto is a West-Oak High School graduate who was born in Nogales, Mexico before moving to the United States at age nine. De Luna Soto has been married to his wife Laylla for six years and they have a four-year-old daughter named Chloe. His fluency in both English and Spanish as well as his ease and skill at quickly building a rapport with others will undoubtedly be highly useful as he interacts with both students and parents in the Seneca Middle School community.

When asked why he sought out the opportunity to serve as a school resource officer, De Luna Soto said, “I enjoy having an impact on student lives and getting to know kids and teaching them about policing.”

Reminder application for parents
Remind is an app that gives educators - from individual classroom teachers to the school principal - the ability to quickly and efficiently send out messages to parents and students with important information and reminders.  If you are interested in signing up for the Seneca Middle School Remind please go to this LINK and follow the prompts.

A little friendly competition usually ends up being a positive thing. At Seneca Middle School, the competition has just begun. As part of our PBIS program, we participate in an initiative - intramurals - which we have found that definitely excites and motivates our students throughout the year. Most people think of intramural activities as strictly related to sports, and while sports will be incorporated into the SMS intramural system, our program will include much more. Intramural competition at SMS will take place between the three grade levels, 6-8. The goal is for the grades to compete in all areas of student life: academics, attendance, discipline, athletics, music, art, workability skills, etc. Thus the various activities will include things such as flag football, basketball, MAP scores, Honor Roll and even such random items as the cleanliness of the hallways. For each individual activity, the grade level earning first place will earn 60 points towards their grade's point total. Those placing second will earn 40 points and third place will garner 20 points. The latest point totals may be found below. Periodic rewards will be granted to the grade level with the largest point total.

Check back often to see how your grade level is progressing!

6TH GRADE - 100 points
7TH GRADE - 80 points
8TH GRADE - 60 points
