Dear Middle School Parents,Welcome to Community School of Naples Middle School. Middle School at CSN is a lively and exciting place. In addition to the challenging academic program, the Middle School offers a variety of electives such as art, music, technology, STEM, theater, and problem-solving. CSN students are fortunate to have a choice of three languages: French, Spanish, and Chinese. Students at CSN also have the opportunity to participate in clubs and service both on campus and in the local community. Finally, there is a very active athletic program in the Middle School at CSN. Students may participate in after-school sports in every season.
Middle school students are in the process of forming values and making choices that will define them in adulthood. They are eager for independence, yet still need the guidance and wisdom of adults in their daily lives.
The Middle School faculty is made up of teachers who come to school happy and excited about what they do. Every student in the Middle School is assigned a faculty advisor. Advisory groups are small, usually no more than 12 students, and the group meets several times per week. The student’s advisor acts as an advocate and is the first point of contact between school and home. Very quickly, this group becomes a close, cohesive unit, and through advisory, students learn skills in communication and organization. They participate in meaningful conversations about the core values of the school: honesty, kindness, responsibility, fairness, courage, respect, cooperation, perseverance, and citizenship.
I am so happy that you have chosen to join our Middle School during this very important developmental time in the life of your child. Thank you, and welcome to CSN.
Mrs. Jacqueline V. McCormick
Head of Middle School
