Community Middle School (CMS) offers a developmentally responsive program that addresses the unique characteristics of students in early adolescence, the stage of life between the ages of 10 and 15. The students are assigned to grade-level teams where they develop supportive relationships with caring educators who are committed to young adolescents and their unique instructional needs.

The curriculum at CMS is aligned with the New Jersey Core Content Standards and encourages creative thinking and problem solving while also offering concrete, experiential learning that is relevant and challenging. The core academic program consists of language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, and world language. Core subject teachers work together to provide interconnected, integrated experiences that help students make sense out of their life experiences. The language arts program promotes literacy and effective writing and oration skills. The math program is theme-based, integrating hands-on, discovery-based learning, problem solving, mathematical modeling, and exploration, with skill development, thereby making mathematical concepts easier to learn and remember. The science program is based upon national and local standards and is designed to promote inquiry and critical thinking. Social studies deals with ancient civilizations, United States history, and world cultures to develop critical thinking about how historical events shape modern perceptions and civilizations. The world language program promotes language fluency and cultural study in German, Chinese, French, and Spanish. Specialized programs exist to meet the needs of exceptional children.

Students discover their own particular abilities, talents, interests, and preferences through elective and cycle classes that include instruction in computer technology, performing arts, life skills, broadcasting and television production, industrial technology, art, and music. Health and physical education classes affirm the school?s commitment to the concept of a healthy mind in a healthy body. Students may participate in choral, orchestra, and instrumental music programs that provide group and individual instruction. Comprehensive guidance and support services are available. The Media Center houses a collection of print, non-print, and on-line materials to support the curriculum, sustain student interest, and serve as a focal point for instruction and research. The computer technology curriculum helps students develop the research and presentation skills utilized throughout their academic program.

CMS offers many opportunities for students to become involved in after-school clubs, intramural programs, interscholastic athletics, service projects, performance groups, and drama productions. These programs foster school spirit, community service, cooperation, and responsibility.

CMS recognizes the value of establishing strong community and family partnerships. Site-based planning committees empower staff, parents, and students to become involved in shaping the school. A dynamic PTSA program lends support to parents and students by sponsoring activities that expand and enhance opportunities. Communication between school and home is vital and is maintained through homework hotlines, periodic publications, and postings to the district and school web sites.

CMS has a faculty of dedicated and knowledgeable educators who pride themselves on being continuous learners committed to implementing a comprehensive academic program in a supportive and nurturing environment.
