About CMS


The mission of Central Middle School is to develop high performing students in a safe and nurturing environment. At CMS, ALL learners are empowered for active participation in their community through purposeful, authentic, and personal learning opportunities.   







Each P.I.E.C.E matters!



All learners are capable of acquiring the knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed for ethical and responsible citizenship in an evolving global community.

Deeper learning occurs in environments that promote and support academic risk-taking and complex problem solving.

Collaborative and active learning opportunities deepen understanding.

Engaging and empowering CMS families in the education process enhances learning, academic achievement and personal growth. 

Fostering strong, positive relationships are critical to the success of every learner in our community.

A highly effective learner experience involves a blended approach that is purposeful in the selection of both digital and non-digital tools and resources.

The ability to demonstrate mastery of skills and content is personal to each learner and often requires more than one opportunity

Frequent opportunities for purposeful reflection are integral to the growth, development, and self-improvement of each learner
