Welcome to Hosford Middle School

We are excited about opening the doors to a great 2014-15 school year. Every fall, we look forward to the new opportunities that come when the doors to our building open. This year promises to be full of academic success, social-emotional growth, and meaningful relationships. At Hosford, we value listening to all voices in order to build a caring and empathetic culture. We are a community of life-long learners that take pride in our rich diversity, our collegial staff, and supportive families. Together, our commitment is to ensure equitable outcomes for ALL students. We invite you to engage in this challenging and important work, so that our students feel the far-reaching impact of our collective efforts.  We are looking forward to a year filled with Husky pride that will permeate the building and across the community!
