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. The new facility includes state-of-the-art technology with two MAC labs, one IBM computer lab, and two career and technology labs. All classrooms include computer stations that are connected to the Internet. CGMS strives to provide a variety of programs to meet the educational needs of all students.
