Welcome to Colton Middle School and Viking Country!

Colton Middle School is a small, rural middle school tucked into the foothills of the Cascades in Western Oregon. Currently, we have 9 teachers serving approximately 150 students grades 6-8, and, while we are small, we are still mighty! We have several staff members who are newer to our district and our school, however we also have many who have more than a decade of experience in our district, and some quite a bit more. The fact that we retain so many of our staff members for so many years is a source of pride for us and makes it clear that our staff members choose to be here at Colton. We take great pride in who we are and the quality of education we can provide our students.

Here at CMS we have high expectations of our students and staff, asking all members of our school community to be responsible, respectful, and kind. It is our goal to do our best to prepare our students for their next steps and that includes supporting them as well as challenging them in order to build those necessary skills. A student's path to Graduation begins their first day of Kindergarten and continues throughout middle school. School is not without challenge and any time our students have the opportunity to build the skills they will need to persevere we want to be there to encourage their growth. Learning, after all, is all about growth. Seeing our students grow from year to year in their academic, college/career-readiness, and social/emotional skills is our main focus. Please find more information regarding our fantastic school throughout our website or feel free to contact us directly with questions. Welcome to Viking Country and we hope to see you around!

In the event of inclement weather, a FlashAlert will be sent out letting families know if we will be closed or have a 3-hour delay. If we have a 3-hour delay, Colton Middle School will start at 11:35AM and drop off will begin at 11:20AM. The school day will still end at the regular dismissal time of 3:53PM. If a weather event were to occur after students arrived at school, and we needed to dismiss early, a FlashAlert, School Messenger and phone call would go out to families to give them specific information regarding the early closure. Please make sure you have signed up for FlashAlert at: https://www.flashalert.net/login/
