Little Mill Middle School in Cumming was recently awarded the 2017 Breakout Middle Schools Award by the Georgia Association of Secondary School Principals. 

Little Mill is one of nine schools in the state to be honored with this award, and one of three schools to be recognized at a distinguished level.

The GASSP Breakout Middle School Award recognizes a school’s “demonstrated commitment to meeting the needs of all students,” and each candidate school is judged for collaborative leadership, personalization and curriculum, and instruction and assessment. 

Little Mill received a reward display for the school building and $1,000 donation from Executive Director for Georgia State University Principals Center James Kahrs.

Fonda Harrison, associate superintendent of teaching and learning for Forsyth County Schools, said the district is “so proud of Little Mill Middle School for being chosen as a Breakout School.”

Added Harrison: “Little Mill Middle is working hard with their staff to improve the learning environment by having a focus on the social-emotional wellbeing of the students, as well as personalizing the instruction to meet the specific needs of each student.”
