    Academic Excellence

     HMA is proud to be in the top 5% of all NC schools for student academic growth.  Our students and teachers are able to achieve this honor by maintaining high standards and requiring rigorous academic coursework.   

    HMA Math teachers are utilizing Chromebooks to help prepare our students with 21st century skills. The Chromebooks were able to be purchased through a donation from Cargo Transporters.  Thank you John Pope and Cargo Transporters!




    Please make sure we have your current email address so you can receive our weekly email.    




    At HMA, we treat people the RIGHT way.  

    We are Respectful, act with Integrity, make Good choices, are Honest, and Treat people the way we want to be treated 


    HMA Wristband   Check out the wristband link!


    We will continue to discuss and learn about these beliefs throughout the year.  

    The mission of H.M. Arndt Middle School is to inspire every student to reach their full potential. The staff at HMA is dedicated to this mission and works diligently to ensure that each student has an opportunity to be successful and reach their full potential.

     HMA is recognized as a state leader for student growth, ranking in the top 5% of all North Carolina schools for student growth index. We offer a variety of academic and extra-curricular programs. The H.M. Arndt website details many of these outstanding opportunities.

    I encourage parents to use PowerSchool as a way to keep track of their son/daughter’s academic progress. PowerSchool allows parents to see up-to-date grades for each class. Parents who do not have the required login information may come by the school and request the access information.

    I hope everyone has a great 2016-17 school year!
