Our mission is to provide a safe, supportive learning environment with opportunities for all students to develop the skills and knowledge to become a responsible citizen in a global society.
The “TEAM” Concept
Cecil E. Gray Middle School (GMS) is organized into teams. Students at each grade level are assigned to a team and usually are taught by the same team of teachers for core subject areas. The team structure ensures a comfortable, nurturing, and challenging environment for the students. In addition to their six classes, students will take part in Repair and Accelerate (R&A), a 30 minute, five times a week program. This time was developed to help students with organizational and progress monitoring strategies, a weekly topic, and tutoring (repair) or acceleration (project). The student is the most important member of a team; and the teachers are focused on moving the student from Good to Great! Teachers, counselors and administrators are available to help in any situation.
