Chromebook 1:1 Initiative

Higgins Students to receive Chromebooks at Orientation Sessions in August

"Dear incoming Higgins Middle School 6th, 7th and 8th graders & families:

In just a few short months we will be moving into our new state-of- the-art Higgins Middle School. One aspect of the new school that we are especially excited about is the 1:1 Chromebook Initiative. Every student at Higgins Middle School will be issued a Chromebook to use at school and at home.

This Chromebook, along with the other technology at Higgins, will help students develop the skills and competencies they will need to succeed in the 21 st century. It will allow for collaboration between students, school, and the community, creating learners who can truly learn anything, anytime, anywhere.

Higgins Middle School will be self-insuring these Chromebooks, and $20 per student ($40 family cap) will ensure against theft, accidental damage, etc…

We will be issuing Chromebooks to students during orientation sessions in August. There are four sessions scheduled: two each on August 11 th and August 16 th . More information regarding these orientations will be coming to you over the summer. In the meantime, please visit the following website starting July 1 to pre-register

a button that reads 'Register Now' with a 'Powered by FamilyID' stamp on the bottom of it

We look forward to seeing you soon in the new Higgins Middle School!

Designed to support our Failure Is Not An Option philosophy, REACH time is structured to help ensure success for all students. There is no one definition of success that fits all students and this block allows us the flexibility to provide support and reinforcement to those that need it, while offering enrichment activities to others.
A feature of our schedule once again this year is REACH (Reteaching, Enrichment, Activity CHoice) once per 5-day cycle.
Students that are eligible (no missing work, MCAS Proficiency, grades meet expectations--ours and theirs!) can participate in activity choice during REACH, which offers enrichment in a number of academic, cultural, and social arenas. Check out our current REACH offerings.

Our Philosophy
At Higgins Middle School we believe that all children can succeed. We also realize that students learn in a multitude of ways at vastly different rates. Simply put: we will not give up on students!
Part of this philosophy includes ensuring that students view failure and improvement as part of the natural learning process and that hard work and dedication pays off. We work with our students to rise to the challenge of our high expectations, to learn continuously, and to never give up.
We encourage and--in some cases--require our students to correct and improve upon their work by entering into a contract with teachers, with the ultimate goal being mastery of the subject area standards.
