Monsignor James J. Haddad Middle School! Set in the heart of Needham Center with students from over twenty different communities, our mission is to educate the “whole” person: mind, body and spirit. We are committed to maximizing academic achievement, promoting social responsibility within a Christian value system, and supporting students’ interests in a wide variety of co-curricular activities ranging from studio visual arts to robotics. The middle school years can be difficult with students experiencing great personal change. There is an unstated philosophy and motto amongst faculty that no MHMS student will be allowed to “slip through the cracks”. Our small school size, attentive teaching staff, insistence on respect, and strong underpinning of Catholic values ensures that students can be guided and monitored through their middle school experience in a healthy, safe way. allenging, joyful and family-friendly.
