Cumberland Middle School

Welcome to our school. At CMS, students are provided with rich and meaningful educational opportunities, where staff encourages students to think critically and problem solve in collaborative settings. We believe in high expectations for all.

CMS offers a wide variety of extracurricular opportunities for students. These include football, baseball, basketball, softball, cheering, forensics, drama, and SGA. Each year the students participate in the annual Walk for Education, Homecoming Spirit Week, the Betty Scales Day of Service, Red Ribbon Week, community holiday parades, local and state fine arts contests, and numerous educationally-based field trips. Please use the link above (on the far right) to access the Student Life page where pictures are posted.

We invite the community to be active participants in our school, and we look forward to working with our students to help them reach their full potential.
