Welcome to Shallotte Middle School - home of the Pirates!


    Dear Pirate Family,

    Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year at Shallotte Middle School!  It is our hope that your year(s) at SMS will be the most successful ones for you.  It is important that you show a willingness to participate in as many activities as possible to benefit significantly.  In other words, get involved, demonstrate a positive and cooperative attitude, and treat others as you want to be treated.

    This handbook has been prepared to provide you with some of the information and guidelines contained in the Student Code of Conduct and school policies necessary for the successful operation of the school.  Our procedures and regulations have been developed with one thing in mind - the welfare of our students.  

    By reading this handbook carefully, you will have the best opportunity for success in the coming school year.  This handbook is a guide and is not meant to contain all the rules and regulations of the Brunswick County Schools’ Student Code of Conduct.

    At SMS, we encourage our students to place high priority on:

    •  Being Responsible 
    •  Being Respectful 
    •  Being Ready to Learn 

    The responsibility for a sound education rests with you, the student; however, the entire faculty of SMS is dedicated to providing a curriculum that will assist you in the preparation for today's society.  We recognize that each of you has different needs, interests, and aptitudes, and a wide range of personal goals and ambitions.  As a result, you can expect a variety of activities in all of your classrooms geared to your needs and abilities.

    At SMS, we are all learners and leaders and together we can all make a difference!
