Plymouth Community Intermediate School is located in Plymouth, Massachusetts. We opened in 1973 as the Plymouth-Carver Intermediate School serving students from Plymouth and Carver. In 1987, we became known as Plymouth Community Intermediate School. We are a middle school with over 1200 students in grades 6 - 8. We have over 150 staff and support personnel. Our school mascot is the "Falcon" and our school motto is "PCIS…soaring strongly and proudly into the future." The school is divided into four houses: Apollo, Gemini, Mercury and Ranger House named after the 1970's space programs.
We are very proud of our enrichment programs at PCIS. We have full-time Instrumental Directors with a grade 6 band and grades 7 & 8 bands. Our Theatre Arts Program offers chorus for grades 6, 7 & 8. There are many theatre productions during the year culminating with a full-scale musical. There is also a planetarium with a part-time director. There are over 30 student extra-curricular activities such as clubs, intramurals and interscholastic sports. We have a nationally-recognized weather station that is part of the WBZ School Weathernet, a local Boston TV Station. Our school has a friendly 120-seat auditorium we call The Little Theater. This accommodates school plays, team activities, and a fully-equipped cable TV studio.
The school year is capped off with the PCIS Olympics, an athletic and academic competition and with other exciting end-of-the-year activities.
