A Message from Our Principal
Castle Dome Middle School welcomes you to the 2019-2020 school year. The entire CDMS community is looking forward to a great year of academic and personal growth, challenges, and accomplishments. We serve a diverse group of about 875 students in grades 6–8. Our support staff of over 70 teachers, paraprofessionals, custodians, food service workers, and administrative staff all work with your students to achieve high academic and social standards and to develop personal and community responsibility. With active parent participation, we work to make each day a positive experience for your middle school student at Castle Dome.
Personal and academic growth, as well as building skills in self-advocacy, during the middle school years prepare your student for high school and beyond. Our learning approach is to offer a balanced instructional program in a team setting that emphasizes academic integrity while making an emotional connection with the students as they continue to develop social skills. In order to succeed, students, families, and staff must work together. We commit to supporting the whole child and invite you to join in this effort to ensure innovation, creative thinking, intellectual curiosity, academic excellence, thoughtful change, and good citizenship.
We are glad you and your student(s) are members of the Castle Dome Middle School community and look forward to a wonderful year.
