Welcome to Monongahela Middle School

Monongahela Middle School is a comprehensive middle school designed to meet the needs of its diverse student body of over 640 students. Originally built in 1964, MMS has been renovated and expanded in 1967, 2001, and 2003 in order to update its facilities.

Monongahela Middle School is proud of its rich heritage. Even its name reflects its history. Chief Monongahela was a revered chief of a mighty tribe of the Susquehanna Indians. Monongahela was the name of one of the first schools to operate in Deptford. Also, the Monongahela Brook ran through the area near our school. The school and its students have flourished, echoing Monongahela’s rich historical background.

Chain of Command Information.

Dear Deptford Family,

One of the top goals of Deptford School District administration is to provide open and transparent lines of communication with all district stakeholders.

As there have been some changes in our district administrative positions, we would like to provide everyone with an updated Chain of Command chart.  If at any time you have a question, concern, or compliment to share, we ask that you please contact the first appropriate person within the chain.  In doing so, we can meet your needs in an efficient and professional manner.

We thank you in advance for your kind adherence to this policy and we look forward to working together to provide the best possible education for our scholars.

Congratulations to Jared Fisher and Hanna Shein!

Congratulations to Jared Fisher who invented  Magnitweezers and is a Junior Finalist!
Jared won a 3D printer to be donated to MMS!

Congratulations to Hannah Shein who invented a Clamp Container and is a Junior Semifinalist!



My name is Deanne Bell with Future Engineers. I’m happy to share that two students from your school, Hanna Shein and Jared Fisher, were recently selected as national semifinalists in NASA and the ASME Foundation’s Two for the Crew Challenge! The challenge asked students across the country to design an object to be 3D printed on the International Space Station and Hanna and Jared’s designs rose to the top ten their age division. I wanted to make sure you knew about their accomplishments during this celebratory week.

Furthermore, I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge Tammy Bitting and Carolann Newman, the teachers at your school who supported participation in the challenge. Not only do you have student rockstars at your school, but teacher rockstars too. 🙂
