Exemplary Programs
In addition to our academic curriculum Gauger-Cobbs Middle School has implemented Culturally Responsive Positive Behavior Support Program (CRPBS) to assist in maintaining a positive school climate. The program is designed to reward behaviors that exemplify the following school-wide expectations: Be Responsible, Be Motivated, and Be Kind. Students are acknowledged daily with "Cobra cash" ticket rewards at the classroom and school-wide level when they make choices that align with these expectations. Cobra Cash tickets are maintained at the classroom and school-wide level until enough are accumulated to earn a classroom level or school level reward.
We are proud to offer many different programs at our school. A snapshot of some of our offerings is listed here:National Junior Honor Society, Student Council, Cambridge, AVID, Language Arts, Math, PBS, FFA, BPA, TSA, Science Olympiad, 4H, Odyssey of the Mind, and Middle school athletics.
