ABOUT US

Clinton Middle School (CMS) serves nearly 400 sixth through eighth graders in the Clinton School District. Our staff is composed of thirty certified staff members, a counselor, social worker, nurse, and office staff.

At CMS, we are dedicated to challenging each student through rigorous curriculum to reach their full potential. Our teachers use innovative lessons to create an environment in which students think critically and explore the world around them. Students are immersed in core curriculum as well as several elective offerings. These offerings include: band, choir, FACS, digital media, STEM, art, technical school rotations, life and health education, and gifted education.

Formal character education lessons are also taught twice a week as the CMS staff helps meet students’ emotional development.  Groups such as Bright Futures, PTO, and our school-based therapist add additional layers of emotional and personal support for students. Over 60% of our students are also involved in our co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. Some of our offerings include: band, choir, football, volleyball, boys and girls basketball, wrestling, track, archery, science olympiad, NJHS, and student council.
