Welcome to Chapel Hill Middle School - Home of the Panthers
The mission of Chapel Hill Middle School is to develop students to become independent productive citizens and responsible life-long learners in a global society.
Our goal is to provide students an environment where acquiring knowledge is the expectation every day. As students matriculate into Chapel Hill Middle they will receive instruction in four academic areas which are math, science, social studies and language arts. We also offer Extended Learning Time (ELT) where students can receive acceleration or remediation services.
To assist students with positive health and career choices they participate in four (4) nine week rotations per year. The courses include Art, Business Education, Band, Orchestra, Family & Consumer Sciences, Math & Science Tools, PE and Health. All students are required to have one (1) rotation of Health per year.
The middle school High Achievers Magnet Programs are designed to serve academically talented students. It provides students the opportunity to excel in a challenging, comprehensive academic environment. In lieu of Extended Learning Time (ELT) all magnet students receive Spanish instruction as part of their program of study. We currently have magnet programs in seventh and eighth grades.
Chapel Hill Middle School also has a gifted and high achiever’s program. Students enter the gifted program based on tests scores from the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) and/or the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT) along with Renzulli testing. High Achiever students are selected based on overall CRCT scale score of 825 in math and/or reading.
