    2. It is developmentally responsive and sensitive to the unique developmental challenges of early adolescents.

    3. The school is socially equitable, democratic and fair, providing all students with high-quality teachers, resources and supports.

    4. The school has norms, structures and organizational arrangements to support and sustain its path toward excellence.

    Clague Middle School will receive recognition at a special school ceremony and at the National Forum Schools to Watch Conference in Washington, D.C. in June.

     "Clague Middle School is a wonderful place for middle grade youth to grow, learn, and explore. Students are happy and behave as learners. The climate of caring is obvious from the moment the students enter the building. Students are set-up for success with supports, prompts and encouragement. Classrooms had clear learning objectives. The building is spacious providing ample space for special needs. Minimal class time is spent dealing with discipline issues and everyone understands that there is a focus on learning." --Quote from Schools to Watch report

    Words of Wisdom:


                                                   "Happiness cannot come from without.  It must come from within

                                  It is not what we see and touch or that which others do for us

                                  which makes us happy; it is that which we think and feel and do,

                                  first for the other fellow and then for ourselves."
