About Myers Middle School

The school is named after abolitionists Stephen and Harriet Myers, who lived in Albany from the 1830s through the 1850s. The Myerses played an important role in helping hundreds of African-Americans gain freedom in the Albany area via the Underground Railroad. Click here to learn more.


Constructed in 2005 through the City School District of Albany’s facilities project, Myers Middle School is a modern three-story, 140,000-square foot facility. The school contains 24 general-education classrooms, six special-education classrooms, six science rooms with prep space, cutting-edge technology classrooms, modern family and consumer science classrooms, two art classrooms with kiln and storage and music, choral and band room.


New assistant principal joins Myers team

John C. Powell, an experienced administrator and teacher, is a new assistant principal at Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School.


Powell spent the last 16 years in the Stillwater Central School District. He began his career there as an elementary school teacher in 2002 and five years later became an assistant principal, serving in the district's elementary, middle and high schools. He served as principal at Stillwater Elementary School until recently. While a principal, his building and the district in general saw impressive gains in student performance on state exams that measure proficiency in English and math skills. Before his work in Stillwater, he taught special education in South Glens Falls and at the Wildwood School in Latham.


He is certified as a school building leader, a special education teacher and an elementary teacher. His first day at Myers was Nov. 28.


New bus service for Myers in 2016-17

The City School District of Albany has replaced Durham yellow-bus service with CDTA busing for students at Stephen and Harriet Myers Middle School. Starting on the first day of school Tuesday, Sept. 6, CDTA will provide eligible Myers students – those who live 1.5 miles or more from school – with the same bus service that other district middle- and high-school students use.


CDTA will pick up and drop off eligible Myers students at designated bus stops. These buses will be designated for Myers students only (CDTA buses designated for specific schools are called “tripper” buses). Also, CDTA tripper buses will drop off and pick up students right in front of school as Durham did in the past.


The district is implementing this change at Myers to provide an improved level of transportation service. The change also will provide equitable bus service for all eligible secondary students district-wide. Please click here for more information. You also can contact Transportation Director Denise Towne at 475-6170 or Myers Interim Principal Micahel Panetta at 475-6425.
