Cecil Intermediate School Synopsis
Cecil Intermediate school houses fifth and sixth grade students from Cecil, Muse, Hills Hendersonville, and the East End of Canonsburg. The present student population is approximately 400. The school is equipped with the latest technologies and safety systems. 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, Social Studies, and Speaking. The wall between the two teachers' rooms is retractable allowing for unlimited integration and teaming opportunities. Students at this level have access to a computer lab, library resource center, five computers in each classroom, and science flex lab. In addition to the regular curriculum students are exposed to a variety of unified arts classes. Students have physical education, art, music, technology, and foreign language classes. 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 qualified students. We have three 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 2 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. 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, parties, 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.
