Special Needs

Campus Middle School strives to meet the educational needs of its student population to the best of its ability. Student needs are individually assessed and proper measures are sought to help each girl succeed.  CMS is a small school, however, and is not equipped to handle severe learning or social/emotional needs.

Nondiscrimination Policy

Campus Middle School admits academically qualified girls of any religion, race, color and national or ethnic origin and grants them the rights to all privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. The school does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin in the administration of educational policies, employment policies, admission policies, financial aid programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs. CMS seeks a diverse community of qualified students.
