A Message from the Middle School Principal….
Our middle school offers a vibrant, hands-on but traditional education to students in grades six through eight. Students experience a small school atmosphere with outstanding academic and social preparation for high school and beyond the classroom. They not only attend five core academic classes each day but also have the opportunity to participate in band and choir as well as nine week rotation classes of computer technology, industrial arts, health/physical education and art. During their eighth grade year students have the option to earn high school credit in classes such as Algebra I, Band and Choir.
Our teachers hold themselves to high professional standards and strive to provide a positive learning experience that stretches students both academically and personally. They participate in on-going professional development to meet the many challenges of working successfully with middle school age children and continually adjust their instructional expertise to meet the demands of the fast-paced world in which our students operate. In addition, they emphasize the importance of character, integrity and responsibility and foster a friendly, caring environment in which students are held accountable for their words, actions and behavior.
In addition to academic instruction, our school offers a mentoring program in which high school seniors, known as “tribe leaders”, work with small groups of middle school students throughout the school year to offer support and help in maneuvering through the transition from elementary school to middle school to high school. Our middle school also offers extra-curricular opportunities in such sports as volleyball, cross country, basketball, track and football and in other areas of interest like drama, cheerleading and numerous clubs.
The “Indian Pride and Spirit” we share in our middle school as well as community will soon be enriched by the building of a new K-12 facility. This building, which is to be completed in 2012, will only enhance the quality program we already offer at Cedarville Middle School!
