About FLMS

The Florida League of Middle Schools was founded in 1972 by a group of individuals who were designing, teaching, and working in a new kind of school called a "middle school". The association is designed for individuals and institutions dedicated to the cause of quality middle level education for grades 5-9.


The mission of the Florida League of Middle Schools is to improve education for middle grades students in the state of Florida.

This mission will be accomplished by:

  • Acting as an advocate for middle grade students and education in Florida
  • Facilitating curriculum improvement and in-service education.
  • Being a clearinghouse for middle level ideas, materials, and personnel.
  • Coordinating statewide efforts in the School Improvement Process in Florida.
  • Securing support for middle level education from groups and agencies.
  • Representing middle schools in public discussions of education issues.
  • Establishing and supporting regional affiliates of the Florida League of Middle Schools.

FLMS 44th Annual Conference-Summer Conference

Keynote speaker, Kim Campbell, used her hysterical, comedic approach to remind us about teaching exciting middle school students. We had many breakout sessions for each interest from Science to being a top-notch principal. Dr. Shannon Vincent presented strategies for working with at-risk adolescents. Participants noted that this was one of our best conferences! Please make plans to attend the conference next June at the Sarasota Hyatt.
