     Welcome to Chilhowee Middle School.  It is a privilege to serve as principal of CMS.  I have been an educator in the Polk County School system for 42 years.  I have served 13 of those as an administrator at CMS.  As principal I have the honor of working with outstanding staff, students, parents, and community.  Each member of the faculty and staff at CMS is dedicated to providing quality academic opportunities to produce successful, responsible citizens.  We believe that not some but all students will know success.  

Chilhowee Middle School is preparing an application for  funds to establish an after school program to provide remediation, hands-on application projects, and social and mental health supports to students. The public is invited to submit ideas by June 19 to the principal’s office for consideration for the grant. The grant is funded through the Lottery Education: Afterschool Program (LEAPS). If you have any questions, contact the principal at the school.
