New Schedule, Team Teaching at CMS

For the 2016-17 school year, Catskill Middle School has introduced a new building schedule that puts greater focus on individual student learning needs and supports a new team-teaching approach at our school.


Highlights include a regularly scheduled skill-building period, called Academic Team Time, that gives students targeted support or enrichment in the areas they need it most. The school also added an afterschool period so students can stay late on any day and get extra help with their school work. The new schedule also ups access to exploratory courses, with students in grades six through eight now taking one quarter each of art, music, technology, and family & consumer sciences over the course of the school year.
