Mr. Mark Beckett

Great beginnings happen in the middle!  I find the middle school years to be the most pivotal time in a young person’s life.  It is a time of social, emotional, and academic growth, coupled with increasing independence and responsibility.  Helping students through this time of constant change and growth is what draws me to the middle school level and CMS.  Chickahominy is nationally recognized as a Blue Ribbon School and enjoys a strong tradition of excellence as evidenced by high student achievement.  Chickahominy Middle School provides a rigorous academic program and many exciting opportunities for children to explore their varied interests and talents.  Our school has a dedicated, talented and student-centered staff committed to making CMS the “best place to learn and achieve.”  Welcome to the Chickahominy family.


Mr. Beckett has served as a middle school educator for over 20 years. He received his Bachelors and Masters in Special Education from Marshall University.
