It is our expectation that students respect themselves and others, hold themselves accountable for their actions, and always strive for excellence. Please plan a visit with our Parent Coordinator, tour our building and learn about the latest news, information and the promising opportunities that SMMS 366 has to offer.


There are many upcoming events and enhancements to the SMMS 366 community, such as our new school branding boulevard banners, the Gender Equity Alliance and our partnerships with the New York Academy of Sciences, Urban Advantage and the Middle School Quality Initiative. Our sixth graders learn medical science in our hospital teaching lab. Seventh graders take music as an elective and our eighth graders take dance class.
