Crestview Middle's History
Crestview Middle School opened in 1992 becoming home to the 6th, 7th, and 8th graders formerly housed at Crestview Elementary School. The 5th grade joined us in the fall of 1994. In 2004, CMS expanded with the building of two new wings on each side of the school providing additional classrooms.
In 1999, Crestview Middle School became the first school in West Tennessee to receive the News Channel 3 WeatherNet program. This program allowed News Channel 3 viewers to actually see real-time live weather conditions from the school site. The Bank of Tipton became the sponsor of WeatherNet 3 at Crestview Middle and remains so today. Crestview Middle's WeatherNet site can be seen on News Channel 3 during the weather segments.
In August of 2001, Crestview Middle also became a site based location for ANSS (Advanced National Seismic System) from The University of Memphis Center for Earthquake Research Institute. There is actually a seismic monitoring device buried on our campus to detect and record activity in this area. To see more information about ANSS, please visit The United States Geological Survey ANSS web page.
Crestview Middle served 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students in and around the Covington area. The average student enrollment at CMS is about 800-900 students. Crestview Middle's mission is... to engage all learners in meaningful lessons that promote high educational achievement in a safe and nurturing environment. The CMS faculty and staff work hard to ensure that each student is receiving the best quality education in a comfortable environment conducive to learning.
Crestview Middle offers opportunities for students to demonstrate leadership in several ways. The National Junior Honor Society offers 7th and 8th graders a chance to participate in CMS's local chapter. Sponsors monitor and inspire them to always do their best in representing CMS in the areas of academics, service, leadership, citizenship, and self discipline. The Student Council is another student opportunity to demonstrate leadership at Crestview Middle. The sponsors inspire students to serve others and their school community.
While academics and
student learning is the cornerstone of our school, we have been also known
throughout the area for our sports teams. Crestview Grizzlies
have earned quite a reputation for athletic success and many of our
students participate in school sports. CMS students have the opportunity
to participate in football, basketball, volleyball, softball,
cheerleading, and track. We also have had a full choir and marching band
through which students get a chance to develop their musical talents.
In the spring of 2012, Crestview Middle began a Charger & Lady Charger Tennis team.
In the fall of 2012, Crestview Middle will be home to 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. This past spring, it was proposed, voted, and approved that 5th grade be transitioned back to Crestview Elementary School this fall.
