Cherry Avenue Middle School

Our Story

Cherry Avenue Middle School is a California Distinguished school that serves students in grades six through eight in the tight-knit community of Tulare, California.

Our first priority at Cherry Avenue is to encourage the educational facet of your child’s life in a safe and friendly atmosphere.

We realize that middle school is one of the most important stages in a child’s educational life, as it raises the bar from elementary school and serves as a preparatory time for high school. We aim to do this in a way that is both fun and challenging for our students.


At Cherry Avenue, we offer the following:

  • Fully credentialed faculty
  • Band and choir programs
  • Elective classes such as wood shop and small engine classes, art, computer, graphic design, agriculture, art, and  "Pinterest" math
  • Athletics
  • ESL
  • An honors program in math and language arts
  • AVID schoolwide
We understand that school isn’t only about core classes but rather about creating a schedule of stimulating courses and activities to build a lifetime love of learning. As you can see, Cherry Avenue Middle School is committed to making these years successful for your child. We look forward to welcoming you into the Cherry Avenue Middle School family.
