We Inspire through Science at CMS
Throughout the year we will feature the district's excellent teaching and support staff through the We Inspire video series. Our excellent teachers have a 99% approval rating among parents, and they work to get to know EACH student to better understand their passions and curiosity. We believe that caring, knowledgeable and dedicated staff are vital in helping our students reach their highest potential. View the introduction video from Dr. Josh Swanson and Dr. Stacie Stanley.  
Our first "We Inspire" video features one teacher who ignites a passion for science at Central Middle School.
