The Giaudrone learning community expects high achievement, citizenship and success for all.Giaudrone Middle School opened its doors on Sept. 3, 2003. Giaudrone is a technology-rich school and was built with middle schoolers in mind. Each grade level is in a wing and elective rooms are scattered throughout. The music rooms and gymnasiums are exceptional. However, nothing is more impressive than the Giaudrone Library. It is the focal point of the school from learning to leisure. The Commons is a meeting place for lunches, grade-level assemblies, dances and evening concerts. Our students and staff members are in grade-level wings sharing grade-level lunches. Lockers and restroom facilities are in or near the individual wings. Grade-level teachers meet twice a week to discuss and plan for student achievement. Located on the east side of Tacoma, Giaudrone Middle School is very visible from the Tacoma Mall and Interstate 5. Encompassing both sides of the freeway, our neighborhood consists of large and small businesses, apartments and single-family dwellings. The Giaudrone Middle School building and facilities are used for meetings and sports activities on a year-round basis.
