About Our School

The Pulaski Community Middle School is located in Pulaski and welcomes students grades 6-8. It draws from all five District elementary schools: Glenbrook, Hillcrest, Sunnyside, Lannoye, and Fairview. It also welcomes students from Assumption B.V.M., the parochial elementary school in Pulaski.

Together with our families we provide a great education that ensures the success of each student personally, academically, and socially. Our goal is to offer a comprehensive academic and co-curricular program in a safe learning environment. We want to ensure that the tradition, pride, and excellence of the Pulaski community continues in generations to come.

Middle School Fact Sheet


School History

The building currently known as the Pulaski Community Middle School (PCMS) began to house students in 1975 and was the Pulaski High School. In 1998, because of tremendous growth, the District passed a referendum to build a new high school on the other side of S. St. Augustine. Prior to 1998, the District did not have a middle school. 

This referendum allowed for the development of the Pulaski Community Middle School. The doors of the new middle school opened in 1999 to students, staff, and families. Currently, the Pulaski Community Middle School houses students grades 6-8 and pulls from the five elementary schools in the District, along with one parochial school. The middle school prepares students to continue on to Pulaski High School.
