About Our School

Meeting the needs of every student continues to be the top priority at CHMS.  Community House Middle School students met Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) goals as required by the No Child Left Behind federal legislation.  Our students made growth in all 37 sub-groups.  We are so proud of our students and staff for this accomplishment!  Also, Community House Middle School has been named an Honor School of Excellence with High Growth!  This is the biggest honor awarded by the state of North Carolina.  We are proud that CHMS is a safe and nurturing learning environment where our early adolescent students are challenged daily.  We intend to continue this tradition!

A quality education includes preparing students for life.  These skills include time management, character development and learning to adapt to daily challenges.  Resiliency can only be accomplished by taking risks, making mistakes and learning from them.

The transistion from elementary school to middle school can be difficult due to the level of increased responsibilities expected of students.  The transition can also be difficult due to the increased amount of life challenges for this age group.  We expect our parents and teachers to work as a team to support the growht of each child.  Although it is hard to allow mistakes and failures to occur, rescuing students does not give them the resiliency they must learn to be successful.

There is something for everyone in Cavalier Country.  Parents are encouraged to become actively involved in all aspects of our school community.  Please find details regarding volunteer opportunities on the following links:  PTA, Athletics, Athletic Booster, Volunteer Information, BRAVO and Fine Arts Booster.
