Why Gray

Gray student holding up laptop

Gray Middle School’s mission is to cultivate thoughtful citizens who think critically, act compassionately, and collaborate effectively to thrive in a dynamic, interconnected world. Gray Middle School continually teaches, models and emphasizes four key values. We call these values “The Pilot Way”, because, like the points on a compass, they will always guide students in the right direction. Respectful, Responsible, Safe and Kind is “The Pilot Way!” Gray students also benefit from our emphasis on AVID strategies school wide, our strong partnerships with Microsoft, the Boys and Girls Club, and Metro Parks, as well as our 11 different sports and 14 different clubs. Gray provides students and families with quality and convenient afterschool programs throughout the school year and summer. Go Pilots!
