On behalf the entire Carson Middle School community, I’d like to welcome you to our website! 

Carson Middle School, “Home of the Solons,” is one of two middle schools in the Carson City School District, located in Carson City, Nevada.  Our vision is to create a culture of shared responsibility to engage, empower, and inspire successful lifelong learners!  To fulfill that vision we offer a rigorous and challenging academic program in a safe, supportive, nurturing environment that recognizes and supports the unique needs of young adolescent learners.  At CMS, each and every student is a valued member of our school community.  Through the support of the Race to the Top District (RTT-D) Federal Grant our school community has created, developed, and implemented a student-centered learning system that is focused on personalizing the learning experience for all students.  Our students had a 95% overall pass rate during the 2015-2016 school year – a result of the ongoing collaboration between teachers, parents, administrators, students, and community members.  In addition to academic achievement and growth, an essential component of a child’s educational experience is social, emotional, and physical development.  We hope to assist each student in developing an enthusiasm for learning that includes happiness, a positive self-image, and an inquisitive nature.  All of our students are equipped with Google Chromebook laptops and a variety of 21st century classroom technological tools that assist in creating and supporting an innovative learning experience. 

At CMS we believe:

·         All students are capable of learning.

·         All students and teachers deserve a chance to work and learn in a safe and respectful environment.

·         All students deserve to be challenged in a way that empowers them to take control of their own learning.

·         All staff, students, and family members hold stake in the educational process through shared responsibility.

·         High expectations for learning are reasonable to ensure academic success.

·         Every challenge is a learning moment and an opportunity for re-teaching.

Whether you are a student, parent, community member, or considering a move to our district, I hope you find this website resourceful, relevant, and useful.  I encourage you to contact an administrative team member to schedule a tour of our beautiful campus.  If you have any questions about Carson Middle School, please do not hesitate to call or e mail me.  Thanks for stopping by!

Regards,
