Central Middle School

We currently serve upwards of 700 students in grades 5 through 8.  Our educators strive to provide learning opportunities that enhance students’ intellectual and social development through instruction that is both relevant and challenging.  Stoneham Central Middle School provides a learning environment that supports teaching and learning so that all students may have a quality education. Here at CMS we are guided by our core values: we have respect for ourselves, for others and for our community; we accept responsibility for our learning and for our behavior; and we are creative problem solvers and competent decision makers. These values guide us in our home, in our school, and in our community.

We are CMS!

Featured event at CMS!

Just before April vacation, audiences flocked to the CMS Drama Club’s musical, Honk Jr! The heartwarming show, based on the story of the ugly duckling, reminded audiences that beauty comes in all forms. The cast, made up of students from fifth to eighth grade, demonstrated remarkable talent while making the barnyard and beyond come to life. The sets and props created by the Art Club gave the show a perfect whimsical feeling. Bravo to the entire cast and crew!
