Cedar Grove Middle School's primary objective is to provide the opportunity for all students to develop academically, emotionally, physically, and socially, in order to be productive citizens in and out of school. The responsibility of CGMS is to provide quality leadership and successful instructional efforts within a safe school environment conducive to learning. Cedar Grove Middle School actively seeks to involve the community, parents, our partners in education and other stakeholders, sharing the responsibility for providing each student with the opportunity to excel with pride. Our efforts are a testimony to our commitment for helping all students become life-long learners.

As the first DeKalb County School built specifically as a middle school, we are a prototype for all the newer middle schools. Several outdoor classrooms are located throughout the campus including the Arboretum, which aids students in learning about an estimated 110 plant species.
