MS Language Arts


At Centreville Layton School, we recognize that Middle School students are reading to learn and need skills and strategies to support this more sophisticated approach to reading. Each student receives the instruction needed to ensure reading success for his/her academic level. A variety of high-quality, research-based programs support the ongoing development of each student’s  challenges.  Reading comprehension is the focus of all content-related classes, with the goal of creating lifelong readers.

In order to create strong writers, our writing program, Lucy Caulkins’ Writers’ Workshop, provides students with tools and strategies to become descriptive and proficient writers and communicators.

The difference is clear

Our son learned the valuable skills of teamwork, patience and perseverance during his time at Centreville Layton as well as the academic strategies to move forward into a typical high school setting. Centreville Layton strikes a great balance of family-like warmth and discipline in a beautiful country setting.

This past year has been completely transformational for our daughter and her positive strides have been noticeable both at home and at school. She is growing into the best version of herself and her teachers at CLS have played a significant role in her progress.

This year, I’ve learned to understand that acceptance is greatly appreciated but difficult to find. Compared to where I came from, CLS houses some of the most accepting people that I’ve ever met. I am thankful for every little act of kindness shown towards me or even towards another student. They have not gone unnoticed.


We’re prepared for this because we’ve learned how to work hard, solve problems, be independent, happy, responsible and kind to all.


The support from my teachers taught me not just reading and writing, but to embrace who I am, to learn from my mistakes and grow because of them.
