Welcome


Welcome to Chief Middle School
Home of the Wolverines!

This is a special place. The goal for all our students is for them to learn the important skills and concepts taught during these middle years and apply them to their lives. We want to prepare these children for the next step in their education, and that means to be ready for the challenges and rewards of being high school ready.

We believe in educating the whole child. In addition to our four core subjects of Language Arts, Math,Social Studies, and Science, we offer a number of encore subjects such as band, choir, art, health and fitness, technology, and drama. In addition to these core and encores classes which provide the foundation for all learning at Chief.  Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, we developed and implemented a student advisory program. This program will help Chief students navigate through some of the challenges of middle school, develop advocacy relationships, and consider career and educational opportunities beyond Chief.   Our extensive “after school program”offerings provide options for kids to connect with school outside their regular class schedule and to work on developing the social skills necessary to be successful in life. Whether a student is interested in after-school wrestling or hockey, or joining our math club (or better yet, more than one) there are many ways for our students to connect and get involved. All of these components – core, encore, advisory, and the after school program– are important in educating the whole child.

We also believe in working hard and learning together. This is evident through our “Wolver-read” and "Wolver-run" programs held annually.  Hard work, learning together, and being successful are hallmarks of Chief Middle School students.  No matter how much talent an individual student has, he or she will have an even better chance of reaching their full potential by developing a solid work ethic and understanding the dynamics of shared learning. So much of what we do today is done collaboratively.  It is important for our student to develop these skills in order to be productive, contributing members of our society.  We promote this.  We challenge and encourage our student to set goals high and to reach for the stars!

 Welcome to Chief – it’s a special place.
