The middle school model combines both a Department and House structure in order to maximize both content expertise and support of the student as a whole child. We are fortunate to have a staff of 75 experienced professionals who share a common expectation of excellence. CMS is an inclusive school that provides a safe, orderly environment conducive to learning, with a student/teacher ratio of approximately 104 to 1 and an average class size of 21.
The learning process is taken very seriously at CMS. Much attention is paid to qualitative skills such as critical thinking, process learning and creative problem solving. By objective measures, CMS students also do well, with above average scores in the 8th grade Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System English Language arts, mathematics, and science & technology tests. Students are well prepared for transition into high school and ultimately college.
