Registration for Abbotsford Traditional Middle School

The majority of ATMS Grade 6 students come from their two feeder Elementary schools: King and South Poplar. The remainder of their Grade 6 students come from schools throughout Abbotsford and even eastern Aldergrove and Mission. They also occasionally have openings for Grades 7 and 8.  Please note, Auguston was previously considered one of ATMS' feeder schools, but is now part of the Bateman family of schools.  ATMS does have Auguston students from year to year and the process for them to register is the same as is for non-feeder school students.  ATMS anticipates spaces for students new to Traditional education once the Traditional feeder school enrollment is confirmed.
