Welcome to Harrington Middle School!

Inspiring Potential. Enriching Futures.
Ms. Kathleen Haines
Principal
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.

Deadline for Winter Sports Physicals Forms - October 17

A reminder that due to new laws this year, there is a "lag" between the time you turn in your child's Sports Physicals paperwork to the time they can actually try-out or practice on teams, or in any physical activity club. All of the forms have to be reviewed and approved by the School Physician first. The deadline to return these forms to Harrington and have students participate in Winter Sports is October 17. Please schedule your doctors' appointments now. (See forms you will need in section about Sports Physicals below.)
