  • Exciting News from Canfield Middle School

    At Canfield Middle School, we are excited about the opportunity to spend some quality time with the 5th graders and their parents. We are certainly proud of the academic and extracurricular accomplishments of our students and believe we have a lot to offer your students.  If your son or daughter will be attending Canfield next year, they will be touring our building with their peers in May. If you would like to schedule a tour before this date, please call our front office at any time.  The transition to middle school is often a time of anxiety for students and parents, and our goal is to begin easing that anxiety right away.  If you should have any questions in the meantime, please don’t hesitate to give our front office a call at 664-9188.

    For families who will be moving or wish to request a transfer to another school in the Coeur d'Alene School District there is now a new procedure for submitting an Open Enrollment form.

    The process is only for parents wishing to transfer their student(s) to a school outside their zoned area. (Zoning is based on your home address-see Attendance Zones on the district website for more details). Space for the 2016-2017 school year, is limited in all schools and grade levels. Our district will closely follow Open Enrollment Policy 3010 for all requests. (Venture High School, Ramsey Magnet School and Sorenson Magnet School are the exceptions to this process, as they are application schools and the applications are available on the school's website). Open Enrollment applications are available online for the next year school year only. Open Enrollment will be available on the website beginning February 1. Please do not wait or you may miss the deadline. If you need more information, please contact us at Canfield Middle School.

Welcome to the home of the Canfield Cougars.  We are so excited to get the 2015-2016 school year started.  Below are a few statements that outline what Canfield Middle School is all about.
Mission Statement: “We invest in each student to prepare, challenge, and advance well educated, resilient and future ready citizens."   
Philosophy: Canfield believes that students are the center of the educational setting.  Our mission is to provide students with the skills necessary to be successful in high school, which will lead them to be successful in any post-secondary endeavor they may choose.  
Academic Goal: We want staff and students to give it their best effort every day.  Our staff uses proven instructional strategies to deliver state standards.  Students are held to high expectations and are given every opportunity to earn high test scores and academic grades.  
Parent/Community Involvement:  Canfield is fortunate to have a very active Parent Volunteer Organization.  This group of dedicated parents graciously volunteers their time to take on many tasks, such as organizing school activities and raising money for classroom grants.  All Canfield parents are welcome to attend.
Canfield Middle School is special because… we have a staff dedicated to high student achievement (we also have a beautifully remodeled building).  Our staff believes in a well-rounded education which includes math, reading, language arts, science, social studies, music, art, foreign language, physical fitness, and technology.  Our staff is supported by our students and parents which produces a positive and safe learning environment.
