Neighborhood Vanguard

At Clifton Middle School we aim to provide a curriculum to develop inquisitive thinkers with a love of learning who cherish independent thought.
We understand that the curriculum, both within taught lessons and beyond them, should create an environment where questioning, divergent thinking and the freedom to learn from mistakes are all encouraged.
We intend that our curriculum should imbue in our students these qualities: responsibility, independence, and a sense that learning can thrill and invigorate throughout life.
 Clifton's STEM magnet program prepares students for the most in-demand 21st century jobs that help fuel our local economy and our nation’s growth. In addition to broad exposure to science, technology, engineering, and math at all levels, Clifton offers a myriad of high school credit courses.
