Middle School

Hello!  My name is Greg Marshall and I am the new principal of Carlisle Middle School.  Prior to CMS, I was an associate principal at Lincoln High School.  I began my career as a social studies teacher at Weeks Middle School, then at East High School first as a social studies teacher and instructional coach.  I am excited to lead the CMS and build on a tradition of success.  It is our goal to serve students and promote a sense of belonging for every student every day.
At Carlisle Middle School we want to empower students to reach their full potential.  The cornerstone of CMS' success is built upon the foundation of its staff operating as a Professional Learning Community; we collaboratively focus on academic success through assessment for learning according to each student's needs.
At CMS, our staff is equipped to teach Pre-AP strategies and tools to engage all students in rigorous academic levels; this not only assists them in a successful transition to Carlisle High School, but also begins the process for preparing them for success in college-and/or-career-programs. 
Along with Pre-AP core courses, CMS also offers Project Lead The Way (PLTW) and Computer Programming in every grade.  Furthermore, we offer several Pre-High School credit classes including Algebra 1, Physical Science, and Spanish 1.
CMS operates within a 7 period schedule in which all classes are 52 minutes in length.  Four (4) times a week we also have a 20 minute embedded intervention period called WIN ("Whatever I Need") which is tailored towards specific student needs in the areas of core academics.
If you're moving or considering moving to Carlisle and want to visit CMS, I would be happy to personally meet with you so you may learn more about CMS and its programs.  Feel free to contact me at 515.989.5402 or via email at
