Academic Teams

Teachers with various sports equipmentChickahominy Middle School employs the philosophy of academic teams to establish a sense of community within the larger school setting and provide the best possible middle school experience for all our students. Teams are comprised of four academic core teachers and approximately 110 students per grade level. Teams help with building character and meeting each student’s academic needs. The community feeling of each team allows students to develop a sense of belonging and helps them make a smooth transition into CMS. Teachers within each team meet together every other day to discuss student progress, plan collaboratively, and celebrate student successes. They meet weekly with grade-level counselors and their respective senior teacher.
