Calkins Road Middle School just completed its first year of operation. My daughters, 6th grade and 8th grade, had an excellent academic and social experience. The teachers are intelligent, child-centered, dedicated and engaged with the students as well as the parents. The music program at this school is exceptional. The school offers three levels of math instruction (Regents, Advanced and Honors) and advanced science in 8th grade to accommodate advanced students. The new facility provides beautiful, flexible and functional learning environment. Parents saw an almost seamless transition with the opening of this school, Pittsford second middle school, and the division of the middle school population. Calkins Road is an excellent academic choice if you live in north or west Pittsford.
