Middle School

Overview
At Carlisle Middle School we enjoy teaching students!  At the cornerstone of CMS' success is built upon the foundation of its staff operating as a Professional Learning Community to 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, CSM 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 23 minute built-in help period called WIN ("Whatever I Need") which is tailored towards specific student needs in the areas of core academics.
 
Mr. John W. Elkin has served as the principal of CMS since 2014 and would be happy to meet with you personally to learn more about CMS and its programs.  You can contact him at 515.989.5402 or john.elkin@carlislecsd.org
