Welcome to Harrington Middle School!

Ms. Kathleen Haines
Principal
Inspiring Potential. Enriching Futures.
The Thomas E. Harrington Middle School is home to 1,056 students in Grades 7 and 8, and 125 staff members, each school day. The professional staff of our school makes a daily commitment to go beyond minimum expectations while we continue to raise our standards. Harrington students make daily contributions to their school and their community.

Our achievements are also a result of the efforts made by area businesses, parental support, advisory groups, local public agencies, and individual community members. Collectively, these resources enhance and enrich the total teaching and learning environment.


Our school provides students with many opportunities to develop academic concepts and skills, acquire fundamental knowledge, determine interests and special talents, and experience a sense of belonging.
