School Description:

All students enroll in CORE language arts, math, science, social studies, and physical education. CY’s CORE Summit Program is specifically designed for the academically high achieving middle-level student.
The new CY facility was designed in the belief that students will gain “a connectedness” in a physical structure that locates exploratory instructional areas within the immediate CORE subject areas. For example, the physical proximity of a science classroom to a classroom exploring aquaculture or aerodynamics will greatly enhance student engagement and learning. Students will have opportunities to explore such diverse areas as pneumatics, agriscience, hospitality and tourism, robotics, CAD, digital manufacturing, laser technology, rocketry and space, engineering structures, textiles and apparel, TV and film, plastics technology, forestry and natural resources, graphic design, dietetics, marketing, digital audio production, and much more. 



Additional opportunities are available in art, music and foreign language. Students also enroll in Cyclone Connections, a 25-minute block once a week focusing on student literacy, goal-setting, career awareness, social emotional skills, and student advocacy. Please visit the school hosted web page for more detailed information on programs and school information.

CY has certified tutors available to work with students in math and language arts. Tutoring and homework help is available during the school day, before school, and after school.



Breakfast is served before school.



We recently implemented a program called Cyclone Connections to improve student achievement. During Cyclone Connections, CY students meet with an adult advisor in a homeroom setting to improve literacy, strengthen home to school communication, set academic goals, learn about career opportunities, and engage in student advocacy. 



In addition, we have continued our Where Everyone Belongs (WEB) transition program to help make the move from elementary to middle school easier. This program includes peer mentoring, as well as support for every student entering the middle level.



CY Middle School also provides Bridges an academic support program open to any student on a drop in basis after school, a time for morning- and after-school homework help, CORES also provide student support based on individual schedules in each CORE. We encourage parents to take a moment to introduce themselves to the CORE team and call anytime they have a concern. CY Middle School encourages parents and teacher to communicate frequently. COREs send out weekly reports that can also be accessed on line via the Infinite Campus Parent Portal. (See Link Below)
