Message from the Principal
Thank you for visiting the Archbold Middle School website! I hope you find this resource helpful. AMS is a special place for students to learn and grow. We have a strong COMMUNITY of students and staff for the 2017-2018 school year! It is inspiring to visit the classrooms and be involved in the challenging and motivating lessons that our students are engaged in every day. No matter the specific role a TEAM member plays; from cook, to teacher, to custodian, all are committed to providing every student with an extremely positive school experience.
- Matt Shields, AMS Principal

A reminder that Ohio law now requires that students entering the 7th grade must have a booster vaccine against Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis. Law requires that students without a documented booster be excluded from school. Additionally, due to recent changes in Ohio Law, a vaccine to prevent Meningitis is also required. Your child probably has not had this vaccination. For additional information, visit www.archbold.k12.oh.us. Click on the “District” menu, choose “Medical Information".
