History of Floyd Middle School

Floyd Middle School began originally as Floyd Junior High School in August, 1965. At the opening of the school year, the Floyd building was not completed so students began classes in the Osborne Junior building. After three weeks, a fire destroyed part of the Osborne building, causing Floyd students to be moved to the South Cobb High School campus. Finally, in January, 1966, the Floyd building was completed and all 900 students moved into their new school. During the next six years, under the leadership of Principal T. J. Hatcher, Floyd grew to a 1500 student capacity, utilizing 14 portable classrooms to accommodate the overflow of students. In the years since, Floyd has been served by Principals Murray Barber, William T. Wood, Sam Harmon, D.R. Allen, Don Sawicki, Sue Rainey, Jim Snell, Gary Boling, and Lawrence E. Bynum, Sr.

As Floyd Middle School continues to grow under the leadership of Dr. Teresa W. Hargrett, Floyd seeks to present stimulating curriculum paired with a positive school climate which will result in the most effective middle school education for its students. Faculty and staff emphasize a forward-thinking approach, encouraging students to focus on college and career preparation. Student participation in many extra-curricular activities, parent volunteerism, PTSA support, and Floyd Partners in Education model stewardship and civic engagement within the school community. Floyd Middle School is a Title I Distinguished School and has received Honorable Mention for High Flying Schools Award, Cobb STEM Certification, and a National Healthy Schools Award. 

Floyd Middle School is committed to creating a healthier school environment. In a healthy school environment, student performance, attendance, and behavior improve.  In light of the new USDA Smart Snack Guidelines, we are limiting the amount of unhealthy food fundraisers to no more than ten (10) per school year.
