Cougar Learning Lab

CMS Cougar Learning Lab is open to students from 2:30 – 3:30 p.m., on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the library. Teachers volunteer their time in the Lab to provide a safe location for students to work on a variety of academic activities, such as work completion, organization, seeking teacher help, or reading. Students need to be prepared to work productively the entire time.

To maintain and refine the climate of an effective middle school, our mission is… To help all students experience success and reach their full potential in an environment that nurtures high academic achievement, positive self-esteem, good values, appropriate and responsive student behavior, and open, effective communication among students, parents, teachers, and community.  Their middle school experience will prepare them to move forward in becoming globally competitive students prepared for their chosen college and/or career path.

Our vision is clear…

To create, sustain and invest in a culture of deliberate excellence which helps to prepare our youth to become globally competitive students and contributing citizens. Our instructional outcomes are guided by three principles: (1) What children are expected to know and to demonstrate, (2) How our children can best be taught, and (3) How their learning will be assessed.  We affirm a multicultural approach, which supports that all children can learn, success breeds success, and we (parents, students, educators, and community) share in the responsibility of the learner’s success.

We are guided by the four BCPS goals:  

  • Academic
  • Safety
  • Communication
  • Organizational Effectiveness
