Central Middle School is situated on approximately 30 acres of land in the center of Dover, DE. When the original building was erected in 1923, it housed all of the students in the Dover School District from grades one through twelve. In 1999, Central Middle School celebrated it's diamond jubilee.
Major renovations to the CMS building took place in 1985 and 2004. In 2009, CMS opened with a newly renovated auditorium and a new gymnasium.
Central Middle School enrolls approximately 1000 students in grades 7 and 8. Our students are divided into smaller house teams- essentially creating schools within a school. Each team consists of an English/ language arts, mathematics, science, social studies and special education teacher.
