The Sergeant Bluff-Luton (SB-L) Middle School serves approximately 385 students in grades six through eight. We provide a strong, rigorous, and developmentally appropriate curriculum based on the Iowa/National Core Curriculum, STEM (Science Technology, Engineering, & Math) programming modules, and other research based programs to meet the diverse needs of our student body. In addition to an excellent academic program, SB-L offers numerous extra-curricular activities in athletic and non-athletic settings.
The teaching staff consists of 27 certified educators and an excellent staff of classroom associates who all work together to provide the best education possible. As part of our on-going professional development and ever-changing world of education, administration and staff work collaboratively throughout the year in Professional Learning Communities (PLC's) where we are constantly assessing ourselves and our classroom routines. The local Area Education Association (AEA) provides additional support to the district, primarily in the area of special education and other specialized services. I, along with my entire staff work hard to “Ensure that every student experiences great teaching EACH day.”
The SB-L Middle School offers the following extra-curricular opportunities which are governed by local and state authorities. Opportunities include football, volleyball, cross country, cheerleading, boys/girls basketball, wrestling, track, soccer, and various opportunities within the fine arts (band and choir) arena. Eighth graders are eligible to tryout for the high school softball or baseball teams, per athletic association guidelines. Any student choosing to participate in athletics must provide a current physical and concussion awareness form prior to participating. Athletic Association guidelines prohibit sixth grade students in Iowa from participation in middle school/state sponsored athletics. Fine arts opportunities are available to all students in grades sixth through eighth.
Parents/Guardians are encouraged to be actively and positively involved in their child’s education by creating a trusting relationship with staff and administration, and partner with us on this journey. We welcome and respect your input and look forward to the partnership. You can also visit SB-L middle school on Facebook for various pieces of information regarding the building.
