School History

Collaborative Arts Middle School was proposed to the NYC Department of Education Office of New Schools in the fall of 2010 and approved in the spring of the 2011. Designed with the idea of providing students with the opportunity to have a unique middle school experience, our school was supplanted in the tri-community area of Queens (Rosedale, Laurelton, and Springfield Gardens) to serve students and families with a quality standards-based education accompanied with a technically sophisticated arts experience. Opening with the 156 6th grade and nine teachers, the school has evolved to serve three grades with over 40 educators guiding our nearly 400 students.

  • CAMS is launching The Watch D.O.G.S. Program!

    Watch DOGS are fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and other father-figures who volunteer for at least one day each year at an official WATCH D.O.G.S. school. During the day, WatchDOGS may read and work on flash cards with students, play at recess, eat lunch with students, watch the school entrances and hallways, assist with traffic flow and any other assigned activities where they actively engage with not only their own students, but other students as well. Many school principals have reported that the mere presence of a WatchDOG dramatically reduces reports of bullying. On the day of their participation, WatchDOGS are given a brief review of their involvement and they wear an official WATCH D.O.G.S. t-shirt with a disposable ‘Dog Tag’ identifying them as WATCHDOGS.
