  Mission Statement  

Challenging minds
Developing character
Maintaining a safe learning environment
Supporting physical, mental, and emotional growth


"The school’s mission statement was examined during the 2010-2011 school year as a part of the reaccreditation process, but stakeholders determined that changes to the mission statement were unnecessary, as the mission statement continued to coincide with the beliefs and vision for the school. The mission statement continues to serve as a simple reminder of what the stakeholders at Chuckey-Doak Middle School are supporting and the acronym provides stakeholders with a mission statement that is easy to remember."

  About The School  

Welcome to the CDMS Family!

Welcome to the CDMS Family! We consider all of our students, parents, guardians, faculty, staff and community as part of our family. At this school your child will be academically challenged, accepted and loved, and shown how to exhibit strong character and cultural values. Our three core values are Rigor, Respect and Responsibility. We expect our students to work hard in order to accomplish their goals, to treat others with kindness and to own what they do. All of our beliefs and values are accomplished with consistent communication, early notification if an issue arises, and always keeping an open-door policy.

Our belief system guides us as we strive to make this community, but especially CDMS, the very best for your child. Thank you for choosing us and we look forward to working with you as we make our school, community, and childrens’ lives better.

TCAP Information

Tennessee is Raising the Bar for Students in the Classroom

Higher academic standards will make students ready for college or a career, but will mean harder tests and maybe even lower test scores and grades in the near future. If your child is struggling with higher standards, don’t get discouraged. As a parent, it’s time to EXPECT MORE so your child can ACHIEVE MORE. Know the facts. Understand why higher standards are important to your child’s future.
