  About The School  

Oneonta Middle School

     Oneonta Middle School is located in Oneonta, Alabama, a small community nestled in the mountains just northeast of Birmingham. The city school system was organized in 1953 and since then has grown to approximately 1,500 students K-12, with approximately 150 faculty and staff members. It is located on one 84-acre site which adjoins the city and park recreation facilities. The present school was constructed in 1977, with additions in 1992, 1998, and 2007. The school's physical plant includes over 125 classrooms and offices, two media centers, five computer labs, three gyms, a separate band room and an auditorium which seats 804. In addition to the plant, the complex includes a stadium, track, ball fields, and three practice fields. The staff of the system is committed to excellence, with majority holding advanced degrees in their field. Community support for the system is evidenced by the active role parents and community leaders play in the school programs and activities. In addition to the Athletic Booster Club, there is a Band Booster Club, as well as an Academic Booster Club. These organizations work to provide guidance and funding for various student activities. At the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year, the middle school was created with grades 6-8. There are 19 teachers in our faculty and approximately 364 students. Besides academic and athletic programs, our school also offers Robotics, Student Government Association, and the National Junior Honor Society.

     The Board Members are Patrick Adams- President, Ricky Hicks, Sharon Breaseale, Stephen Anderton, and Donald Maples. Our Superintendent is Daniel Smith and principal is Brad Newton.
