Our Mission

The mission of the Clifford H. Smart Middle School community is to provide a nurturing environment which fosters high self-esteem and positive development of every individual's behaviors, attitudes, knowledge and well-being so that each may live a productive, satisfying life as a responsible member of our changing society.

About Us

Clifford H. Smart Middle School serves over 1,000 students in grades 6th through 8th.  Principal David Tucker and Assistant Principal Dan Holland work with over 75 faculty and staff to deliver a curriculum and extracurricular program that encompass high standards and values.

Dear Parents:

Aristotle once said, “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.”

At Clifford Smart, our goal continues to be to guide each student’s growth by providing a quality education. We, at CHS remain committed in providing a school experience where; students feel safe and cared for, students are actively engaged and challenged in their learning, and there is a high level of community involvement. Henry Ford once said, “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success”.

One of my sources of pride continues to be our school/community relationship. Having such a wonderful parent leadership group, “PTSA”, allows for productive open dialogue, brainstorming, and positive decision making between the school and community.

Another source of pride remains our open lines of communication. Please view our Clifford Smart Chronicles, and feel free to contact us with your comments, questions, and or concerns at 248-956-3500.

On behalf of the Clifford Smart staff, I want to thank you for making CHS such a wonderful place for children to learn and grow.
