Excellence for Every Child


From the Principal . . .

Welcome to Halls Middle School.  I am honored to serve as Principal of Halls Middle School.  I am so excited to be a part of such a wonderful community and school.  Our desire is to provide your student with an enriching and engaging middle school experience that helps them grow not only academically but socially and emotionally as well.  We want to provide rigorous and engaging instruction in the classroom as well as multiple opportunities for involvement in clubs and activities before and after the school day.  We want each and every student to leave our building prepared for high school and the challenges beyond.

Our mission: "Serving others--striving for greatness" will take the effort of all administrators, faculty, students, and parents.  Working together we can help ensure all students at Halls Middle experience greatness. 
You can help your child be successful in school by:
•Holding him/her accountable for learning, behavior, and school involvement
•Becoming involved at Halls Middle School
•Supporting the teachers
•Celebrating your student(s) success
•Communicating positively with your student and his/her teacher(s)

  • Yearbook Sales Kickoff!

    We have simplified the yearbook ordering process this year. The standard yearbook, one of the lowest-priced middle school yearbooks in Knox County, is still available at $35. Students can personalize their yearbook with up to 25 characters in foil stamping on the cover for $5 more. Students may also select from a number of yearbook enhancements offered by Balfour.


    Those wishing to pay by check or money order must use the order form that went home with first quarter report cards. No money will be collected at school! All orders must be made to Smart-Pay via credit/debit card, check, or money order. Additional order forms are available in the main office or from Mr. Bennett in room 250.


    All orders placed by November 30 will be entered into a drawing for a free yearbook! The deadline to order your 2015-16 yearbook is December 31, 2015.  If you have any questions please email the Halls Middle School yearbook adviser, Andrew Bennett, at, or call the main office at 865-922-7494.
