CFMS RECOGNIZED AS AN OHIO SCHOOL TO WATCH FOR 2019

Chagrin Falls Middle School is proud to share that the National Forum to Accelerate Middle Grade Reform has recognized our school as an Ohio School to Watch for 2019.  The program seeks to recognize a small number of diverse, high-performing, growth-oriented middle grades schools to demonstrate what all middle grades schools are capable of achieving.        
The criteria is based on:  
Academic Excellence where students are challenged to extend their minds.  
Developmental Responsiveness as staff is sensitive to the unique developmental challenges of early adolescence. 
Social Equitability that depicts fairness in order to provide every student with high-quality teachers, resources and supports.
Lastly, an organizational Structure/Process in place in order to enable the aforementioned three characteristics.

CFMS was recognized at the National Schools To Watch Conference in Washington, DC. and at The Ohio Middle Level Association this past November.


We care very much about the middle level student and work tirelessly to provide them with the very best education that reaches the mind, body and spirit of each individual Tiger.
