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 Prime Time, a 25-minute homeroom focusing on student literacy, goal-setting, career awareness, social emotional skills, and student advocacy.

Clubs and cocurricular activities include Annual, Computer Club, Geography Club, National Junior Honor Society, Robotics, Art, Dance, Jazz Band, Science Club, Student Council, Band, Drama, Jazz Choir, Newspaper, Spanish, Flute Choir, Math Club, Orchestra, Spelling Club, and Cheerleading.

Athletic programs include basketball, football, cross-country, track, volleyball and wrestling. Ninth graders also participate in a variety of additional sports at the high school level.

CY has two 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 Prime Time to improve student achievement. During Prime Time, CY students meet with an adult advisor in a homeroom setting to improve literacy, strengthen home-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 Junior High also provides Jolt, a time for morning- and after-school homework help, and Bridges, an after-school program for academic assistance.
