We have recently implemented a school-wide 1:1 Chromebook initiative for our students and staff. Teachers and students alike utilize Google Classroom on a daily basis and a number of our teachers are Google certified educators. Clearview Middle School also has an Arts Program that includes an award winning Chorus. In addition, our Students in Action won the state Silver Medal for students committed to community service.

Clearview Regional Middle School aims to provide students with an education that is Developmentally Responsive, Challenging, Empowering, and Equitable. Our curriculum is exploratory in nature, integrative, and relevant. The school culture is safe, inclusive, and supportive of all.

We believe firmly in student voice and equip our students to apply critical thinking and problem solving strategies to real world issues.
Clearview Middle School offers Honors Algebra I and Honors Geometry which have the same high rigor and pace as the high school courses. Our inquiry-based science courses utilize IQWST which follow the Next Gen Science Standards.

Our Academic Assistance Program (AAP) is an after school program that refers students through our I&RS committee. Students receive help from teachers and NHS high school students. Students Open Access to Resources (SOAR) is an after school program that allows students the ability to use school resources they may not be able to use at home to complete work.
The district is committed to ongoing, job-embedded professional development of all teachers, support staff, and administration, which is directly linked to the district goals, school goals, and professional development plan. Departments and individuals develop goals (which include a focus on school culture) that enhance the district goals. Staff receive training both in-district and out-of-district, including professional consultants, workshops (focus on data analysis), PLCÃ¢ÂÂs, online and on-demand modules, and motivational speakers. Our staff and administration also provide direct professional development to colleagues. We have very limited staff turnover and 65% of our staff members have advanced degrees (Masters/Doctorate). Many staff members are also college adjunct professors, further enabling them to prepare our students for college.
Intervention and Referral Services provide services to assist students who are experiencing learning, behavioral, or health difficulties. Students with disabilities are provided services in our school community and experience all of the events that take place at the middle school. Our AAP and SOAR programs provide students with after school help and resources to work to the best of their ability. In addition, our Title 1 students are closely monitored for academic and emotional success through our Title 1 Monitors.
Student health and wellness is addressed on a daily basis through our Physical Education and Health classes. In addition, a district wide Health and Wellness committee explores opportunities for both students and staff to engage in healthy activities and habits. A full time Students Assistance Counselor as well as a partnership with an outside counseling agency is available to address issues outside the scope of our School Counselors.
Our very generous PTO supplies our school community with the necessary student and staff resources to help students achieve. Teachers, parents, and administrators meet monthly with the PTO. Our PTO works closely with our Student Council to plan activities for students throughout the year.
We have state of the art facilities which include a newly renovated library called the HUB where students can read and do research. Digital Literacy classes are also taught in the HUB. In every classroom there is a SmartBoard or a Bright Links set up for students and staff to engage with technology on a daily basis. Our Multi-Purpose Room allows for concerts and shows, meetings, and professional development activities.
The districtÃ¢ÂÂs main priority is the safety of the students and staff! WeÃ¢ÂÂve developed and implemented plans/procedures for the protection of health, safety, security, and welfare of all stakeholders. The ongoing, high level of communication between the local law enforcement agencies enhances our ability to attain our security goals. The Memorandum of Agreement with the local police departments serves as our guiding document for all security matters. Our district complies with all state requirements for school security drills. More importantly, weÃ¢ÂÂve implemented several other security enhancements including the following: Dedicated School Resource Officers (SRO) in both schools, Hall Monitors, modified our entrances to limit building access and increase containment to a secured area, installed new digital cameras (interior and exterior) with an increased coverage area, installed Lobby Guard for background checks, and local police have a live view of all cameras.
Technology is embedded in our schoolÃ¢ÂÂs classroom instruction, where students use Chromebooks, various Google apps, and many other interactive apps as tools for learning. Classrooms are equipped with interactive white boards and document readers. We also offer classes such as Digital Literacy, Computer Literacy, and Tech Ed to familiarize students with computer use and digital citizenship.
