History of Our School
From the Rowan County Farm Life School to China Grove Middle School, we have served the citizens of Rowan County with great pride. Established in 1914, as a farm life school serving the agricultural needs of Rowan County, our school has developed from the largest rural high school in North Carolina in 1921 to presently one of the strongest academic middle schools in the Rowan-Salisbury School System. The students, parents, faculty, staff and community are proud of our school’s accomplishments. China Grove Middle School has a historic Rowan County granite design with contemporary renovations that make us a truly unique middle school. The historic buildings on our campus, built by Franklin D. Roosevelt’s WPA program, house our sixth, seventh, and eighth grade core classes. All 34 classrooms have high speed wireless internet access. Beginning in November 2014, every student receives an iPad to use for educational purposes. CGMS strives to provide a variety of programs to meet the educational needs of all students.
China Grove Middle School continues to serve a source of pride for the town and surrounding community of China Grove and Southern Rowan County.
