About FLMS

The Florida League of Middle Schools was founded in 1972 by Dr. Paul George, University of Florida, and a cohort of dedicated educators who were designing, teaching, and working in a new kind of school called a "middle school". The League 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
