Welcome to South Brunswick Middle School!

  • Welcome to South Brunswick Middle School’s website. We thank you for visiting Cougar Country!  SBMS is located in Southport, North Carolina and we proudly serve approximately 750 students in grades 6-8.  Education is essential for our children so that they can have options in life.  Educational achievement requires persistence, dedication, and effort.  Working together with families, we hope to provide a school environment that encourages the best of all of our students.  For us, failure will not be an option.

     At SBMS, we believe that what we are doing is right and every child is worth the work.  We provide an environment that challenges students with a standard based education program and prepares them for success in high school and beyond.  We create an environment of educational excellence using a variety of instructional strategies that address the varied learning strengths of our students.  We provide a nurturing environment where all students feel supported emotionally, intellectually, and physically.  Finally, we help our students build personal characteristics that develop integrity, cooperation, and honesty and encourage respect and celebration of individual differences.

     David Ruth, Principal
