The middle school learning environment (grades 6-8) is student-centered, encouraging them to become active learners. Common Core Standards guide the middle school team in programming and curriculum development.

Learning expectations are set that are commensurate with the experience, needs and potential of young adolescents. Units in language arts, mathematics, science and social studies offer opportunities for students to:

  • Develop critical thinking skills
  • Experience cooperative learning through group instruction
  • Create connections between subjects and ideas
  • Participate in experiential learning
  • Utilize technology in practicing research skills
  • Develop strong written and oral communication skills
