Welcome to 6th Grade

Parents and Students,

Welcome to Center Middle School. It is our belief that the students we teach are at a pivotal stage in life where only the best instruction and example can guide them to the path of success. It is our goal to create a welcoming and comfortable environment for the students who are making the difficult transition from childhood to early adolescence. Our teachers recognize the complexity of this time in their lives and offer the students positive models to emulate. We will teach and encourage organization, and effective study skills. By teaching the students a sense of responsibility, the students can then learn to become more independent and self-motivated. Our ultimate goal is to lead and teach with an infectious enthusiasm that will foster a love of learning in our students.
