Middle School Enrollment

The City School District of Albany provides middle-school programs for students in grades 6-8 in three schools: Edmund O'Neal Middle School of Excellence, Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School and William S. Hackett Middle School. Each school is designed around smaller learning environments that provide the most current educational and support services to help all students reach their full potential.


Enrollment has increased significantly in the past decade. The school district's Grade Configuration Steering Committee is working on a long-term enrollment plan to help the district manage increasing middle-school enrollment. Click here to learn more about the committee's work.
