“Poplar Grove School is a community of creative and passionate learners committed to continuous improvement.”

welcome to



Welcome to Poplar Grove School. We are a fifth through eighth-grade school that strives to fulfill the district’s vision of “Excellence in Teaching and Learning for All” by differentiating and individualizing instruction to meet the wide variety of learning needs that exist in each classroom. Our school mission is to create “A Community of Creative and Passionate Learners Committed to Continuous Improvement.” Being connected to Poplar Grove Elementary School by a shared hallway allows our students the unique opportunity of mentoring and setting an example for younger students and siblings at PGES.  We are confident that a strong collaboration between school and home will result in optimum learning opportunities for our students. The PGS faculty, staff and administrative team are here to serve you. Please contact our offices if we can provide further assistance.
