Middle School Academics
The Middle School’s departmentalized classes are designed to assure success through middle and high school, with college as a clearly defined and achievable expectation.
Middle School is filled with enthusiastic and engaged students exploring new horizons in their academic, social, and emotional growth. The rigorous curriculum is challenging while being progressive, and is centered in an interdisciplinary approach to learning which fosters depth and complexity in understanding the topics addressed. The teachers collaborate and create a dynamic learning environment that is interesting and motivating. The school fosters student self-esteem through high expectations for each student and recognition of success.
A Curriculum Guide and Course of Study has been designed by the School to designate grade level expectations. The teachers utilize these resources as well as textbooks and classroom materials to formulate the program for each class. The teachers adapt the material provided to meet the needs of individual students and the class as a whole.
Organizational skills and personal responsibility play a significant role in Middle School, from using a student planner, a color-coordinated binder system, and setting academic expectations and goals. Our expected Schoolwide Learning Outcomes* are actively addressed each and every day.
Middle School students are required to take the following classes:
