About Us

Our Mission / Vision
Hastings Middle School...
a diverse community working cooperatively, to learn and grow in a safe and caring environment.

The goal of the Hastings Middle School centers on individual student success, mastery of learning and development of positive, well-rounded, life-long learners who work together as respectful and responsible citizens. We operate from a middle-level philosophy because we recognize that middle school students are a unique population with special needs of early adolescence. Our staff provides an environment that allows for the varied stages of development in our students. We have created a carefully designed program so that each child is given opportunities to develop and grow intellectually, emotionally, socially and physically. Hastings Middle School staff and faculty stand ready to meet your child's academic, social and emotional needs. More than 70% of our middle school teachers have middle-level certification. There is a wonderful blend of youth and experience. Hastings Middle School has been recognized three times as a National School of Excellence.

Dakota County is assessing safety near schools – Your input is needed

Dakota County, in collaboration with MnDOT, is conducting a study to proactively address safety for students traveling to and from the 49 schools in Dakota County next to county roads and state highways. The study and recommendations will focus on pedestrian and bicyclist safety.

The county is currently hosting a virtual open house to share study goals and process and needs your feedback. You can share what works and what is challenging about walking and biking to school as well as bus and parent drop-off. The virtual open house materials are available now on the project website and will remain open until at least July 26.
