Welcome to CRCS Middle School!
Mission: Cuba-Rushford Central School counselors will equip all students with the healthy social & emotional skills necessary to be independent and conscientious learners.
Vision: Prepare students to achieve academic and future success in a global and collaborative community.
Cuba-Rushford School Counselors are working on updating our K-12 Comprehensive School Guidance Counseling Program to align it with the American School Counselor Association's National Model. Our counseling program is working toward facilitating student development in three broad areas:
- Academic development
- Career development
- Personal/social development
In addition to large group instruction in these three areas, our counselors can provide short-term, goal-focused counseling to help students over come issues impeding academic success or success in school. When students require long-term counseling or therapy, we can help refer students to appropriate community based resources.

Parent Portal - Did you know that you can access your child's grades at any time? Using the Parent Portal you can check the grades as often as you like. Cuba-Rushford MS/HS does not mail home paper copies of progress reports, they can be viewed through the Parent Portal. Therefore, it is very important for parents to get connected to the Parent Portal as soon as possible if they are not already connected. If you would like more details on this tool, please visit the CRCS homepage and click on the Parent Portal Quick Link tab. There is also a video below explaining how to set up our PowerSchool Mobil App.

A copy signed by a parent should have been returnged to the Guidance Office by May 1st. Please email or call with any questions.
