Welcome to Alger Middle School (6-8)

Hello future families and thank you for your interest in Alger Middle School. It is my privilege to serve as the principal of Alger, a place where every scholar learns the skills they need to be successful through middle school and beyond.

Our Alger staff is dedicated to helping each scholar reach their fullest potential. We offer strong academic courses and lots of extracurricular opportunities that will allow your child(ren) to excel in and out of the classroom. Whether it's helping the school raise test scores, playing on the championship basketball team, or competing in state choir competitions, your child(ren) will certainly feel part of the Alger family. If you would like more information about becoming a Bengal, please schedule a tour or give us a call at 616-819-6200. We look forward to partnering with you!

At Alger, we challenge our scholars to be their best selves in and out of the classroom. 

Alger Middle School is a strong educational institution that is proud to have an outstanding team of teachers and staff who are committed to student achievement and social emotional growth. Alger Middle School students are a diverse group of exciting learners who look for achievement at the highest level. Students enjoy a welcoming learning environment where our staff work hard to meet the needs of every child. Our goal is to ensure that all of our scholars are well-prepared to not only enter, but succeed in, high school. 

Alger Middle School was built in 2006 in the Alger Park neighborhood in southeast Grand Rapids. Our building features state-of-the-art classrooms, innovative common areas, and modern technology. Our beautiful soccer, softball, track, and baseball fields allow our scholars to practice sportsmanship in the safety of our school grounds. Whether it's for academics or extracurricular purposes, Alger's campus is designed to maximize learning. 

We have incorporated distance learning for years and are poised to be a leader in the district as a blended model of new technologies and old practices, giving our students the best of both worlds. Our 1-to-1 student technology device approach ensures that every student has the opportunity to learn inside and outside the classroom.
