• Welcome to Arctic Wolves Middle School 

Middle School Overview:

  • The Online Middle School was created for the 2021-2022 school year to meet the educational needs of students who needed a safe, healthy, and distraction free environment.  The adjustment to middle school can be difficult for many students as they navigate the complexity of maturing into young adults socially, emotionally, and physically.  In order to provide SPPS students with a choice as the next step from distance learning, the SPPS Middle School was created to give those students who needed a different learning environment.  Students have a structured daily core class schedule as well as electives in Health/Physical Education and Art.  Our Online Middle School provides an opportunity for students to develop their academic skills and prepare for high school whether they choose the SPPS Online High School or a traditional setting.
