Mr. Philip Wirth  
Welcome to CIS!  This is my 34th year as an educator with the Pinellas County Schools. I am proud to be part of the best instructional staff in our county. The Panther family prides itself with developing positive relationships with our students and their families. Our mantra is to develop the "whole child" so that they can reach their potential and be productive citizens. Our school expectations are embedded in character education and taught through Project Wisdom and our new Panther Card System.  Our core values are:


Through the support of strong student services team and tutorial programs, CIS students have the opportunity to upgrade their grade level if they have been previously retained. We also emphasize various literacy strategies in our school curriculum. 
I hope that you consider enrolling your child in our school. Please feel free to contact me at or 727-298-1619

Mrs. Melissa Porter

I have been an educator of Pinellas County Schools for 16 years. I have worked with Drop Out Prevention students for the last seven years. I am excited to continue this work experience at Clearwater Intermediate. 

Parents and students, I would like for you to know that I am passionate about education. I believe we must alleviate the obstacles that are interfering with this initiative in order to prepare students for the real world. There are tests to pass and rules to follow but I believe all students can make it.  Students, believe in yourselves, as I believe in you. I strive to support and implement collaboration among parents, students, and all school personnel to ensure student success. 

If you should have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me via email at or by calling 727-298-1616 ext. 2014.
