Concord Magnet K-8 Middle School Open House

Concord Magnet K-8 is hosting a Middle School Open House on Thursday, October 26, 2023 at 6:00 pm in the school cafeteria. Norwalk families with current fifth grade students interested in learning about the CMS Middle School Program are encouraged to attend.

The Concord Magnet Middle School is an extension of the school’s K-5 arts integrated, HOT School program focusing on the development of the whole child. Our middle school maintains a smaller roster of students. We prefer a small class because research shows smaller numbers encourage more opportunities to establish deeper connections with teachers. Our students delve deeper into topics as they work collaboratively with one another. Our approach is not intended to be conventional or traditional. There is less emphasis on memorizing and repeating facts; rather, we focus on researching and making sense of what we study. Our projects are hands-on. We encourage the children to express themselves creatively. Although we look very different from the other middle schools, we fulfill all the necessary requirements to prepare our students for entry from 8th grade into the two high schools, as well as the specialized high schools, the Center for Global Studies and P-Tech. 

Our evening will include an overview of the CMS Middle School program and a tour of the building. Concord Magnet K-8 is located at 21 Hunter’s Lane, Norwalk, CT 06850. Our building is an annex of Ponus Ridge Middle School. CMS is located to the right of the Ponus building.
