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.

Stoneham Public Schools COVID Hotline: 781-435-6151

Please call this number immediately to report a positive COVID test for a student or staff member or if a student or staff member has been in close contact with a COVID positive person. The CDC defines close contact as someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to test date). If the student or staff tests positive or is a close contact of someone who has tested positive, such as a family member,  they should NOT come to school. After you leave a message on the COVID hotline a Stoneham Public Schools staff member will be in touch with you shortly to discuss next steps.
