We believe that children can be responsible for their own learning and reflect our high expectations. All learners at Cecil Intermediate School are entitled to a nurturing environment that provides support and safety for all.

All staff members at Cecil Intermediate School are stakeholders in educating young minds. Parents, teachers, students and administrators are equal partners in this educational process. Our instructional practices are research-based and differentiated in order to address the needs of various learning styles. Our aim is to encourage success in many facets of each learner, including behavior, motivation, and their academic progress.

Cecil Intermediate School Synopsis

Cecil Intermediate school houses fifth and sixth grade students from Cecil, Muse, Hills-Hendersonville, and First Street Elementary Schools. The present student population is approximately 430.

In 5th grade, students are divided into teams of two teachers. One side of the team is responsible for the instruction of Math, Science, and Wellness. The other teacher has Language Arts (Reading, Spelling, Grammar, & Writing) and Social Studies. The wall between the two teachers' rooms is retractable allowing for unlimited integration and teaming opportunities.

In 6th grade, students are on one of two teams. Each team is comprised of four teachers, each teaching a content area. The content areas are Reading, Writing, Math, and Science. Each "homeroom" teacher also teaches Social Studies and Wellness.

Students at Cecil Intermediatel have access to a computer lab, library resource center, five computers in each classroom, and two iPad carts.

In addition to the regular curriculum students are exposed to a variety of unified arts classes. Students have physical education, art, music, library, technology, and foreign language classes. They also may choose to take Band and/or Chorus.

Throughout the year students have the opportunity to experience a variety of topics taught by the teachers during an Exploratory period. The students select a topic of their choice and rotate through them each nine week period approximately every five days.

Support is also offered during the school day for students who qualify. We have learning support teachers and aides on staff. These individuals push into the classroom in an inclusive setting to provide support. For enrichment, we have a gifted education program that functions as a pull-out and push-in program. Students who qualify for gifted support are pulled out for a minimum of two hours a week.

In addition to the academic supports available, we also have age appropriate social and emotional services. Mr. Barzan, our guidance counselor is available to students five days a week. He provides individual attention on a case by case basis, runs small group sessions for students, and pushes into the classroom throughout the year to conduct lessons for all students.

Cecil Intermediate School also utilizes the research based Olweus Bullying Prevention Program. The entire staff is involved in making this program successful and implementing it effectively throughout the school.

The Cecil Intermediate School Parent Organization is very active. CISPO meets at minimum every other month. They are organized by committees. The organization raises funds each year to pay for school programs, after school activities, and special events.

Cecil Intermediate School prides itself on past and present academic performance. Our staff strives to improve student achievement through differentiated instruction, diagnostic testing, and the utilization of clinically proven instructional strategies.
