We are honored and excited that you have made the decision to join the Country Club Middle School Family for the 2014-2015 school year. The long list of local, state, and national educational and athletic accomplishments consistently demonstrate why Country Club Middle School is the number one choice of parents in our community.
As we begin the era of the Florida Standards, our students will continue to benefit from our updated facility where access to relevant resources is unlimited. Our teachers utilize Smart Board Technology to facilitate and enhance learning, while interactive textbooks, social media discussion boards for education, handheld tablets, and laptop computers actively engage all students in the learning process. This school year we continue to pioneer new initiatives that facilitate digital learning. With the full support of the District, we’ve updated our Internet access to offer a school-wide Wi-Fi access that permits students to bring their personally owned devices for instructional use. This clearly demonstrates our commitment to providing all students with the most technologically advanced education possible.
We continue to highlight the most advanced initiatives and best practices in middle school education. We are privileged to once again offer iPrep Math to selected students. iPrep Math is an innovative approach for acquiring mathematical concepts in a digital environment. Elective course offerings have been expanded once again to satisfy the demands of higher education; courses in Robotics, Digital Publishing, Speech/Debate and Law Studies have been added. These new courses will complement the Culinary Arts and Bio-Medical Studies added last year. We strive to continually highlight the most advanced initiatives at the forefront of educational reform while offering a plethora of electives that are sure to prepare your child for the global market.
The quality of education and the success of the educational programs at CCMS are marveling. Our students in the advanced programs outperform the state and district averages. 96% of our advanced students in language arts, almost 93% of our advanced students in mathematics and almost 88% percent of our advanced students in science demonstrated mastery on the FCAT. Our writing scores jumped almost 13 points from the previous year. Those numbers are astonishing. We attribute our success to hard-working students, and devoted members of the faculty who work diligently to provide the best learning experiences for the bright minds of the future.
Whether in an advanced program or in a core-curriculum track, all Country Club Middle School students are uniquely prepared for the demands of technology and college readiness. We realize you have choices in the education of your child; however, we can assure you that selecting Country Club Middle School is the best decision in preparing your child for a successful middle school experience.
We extend a warm welcome and invite you to the HURRICANE family.
