Anne Chesnutt Middle School offers a variety of choices to help enhance your child's education. Our school and staff support the following opportunities of choice:
Spanish Language Immersion Program- Students who have completed the K-5 Language Immersion Program from a CCS elementary school can continue the Language Immersion Program at the Middle School level (grades 6-8). Students will broaden skills in cultural awareness and global knowledge while continuing to learn academic content in Spanish. Students will also strengthen their Spanish language skills.
World Language Focus- Students have the opportunity to learn Arabic and Mandarin Chinese in elective classes. Both programs build speaking, writing, and cultural understanding as students progress through the program of their choice.
Robotics- Learn how to create, construct and write code for autonomous robots using Lego’s Mindstorm NXT and EV3 robots. Students will work in cooperative learning teams to complete projects and missions created specifically for the NXT and EV3. You will learn to use an array of digital sensors: color sensor, gyro sensor, touch sensor, and ultrasonic sensor. Students will leave with an understanding of the engineering design process, the ability to problem-solve as well as troubleshoot problems associated with writing code.
Year-Round Schedule- Students receive continuous instruction during the year. The school calendar starts in July and follows a nine-week period of instruction followed by a two to three week period of intersession. The intersession time may be used for enrichment activities or vacations. The Year-Round calendar provides an environment of continuous teaching and learning that strengthens critical thinking, creativeness, abilities, and communication skills.
