Academic Supports

Carmel Valley Middle School Academic Support Programs

The following list outlines a number of programs designed to assist CVMS students and encourage optimal academic achievement and middle school success. Most programs are open to ALL students on a drop-in basis. SOME programs are by invitation due to specific academic intervention needs and space limitations. Additionally, please note that most teachers are available to provide "sporadic" extra assistance on an appointment basis. The best way to contact your student’s teacher is via e-mail.
