A primary focus of the middle school program is on the acquisition and application of needed skills to pave the way for future success. Middle school provides a transition from our elementary curriculum within a self-contained classroom to the departmentalized organization of the high school. Students of the same level who follow the same schedule often have contact with several teachers throughout the academic day. In addition, every student is given numerous opportunities to practice making choices and reflect on the outcome(s).
In accordance with the schools’ mission, individualized programming is offered to accommodate the needs of a very diverse student body. The interdisciplinary primary program is experiential in nature and provides flexibility to honor cultural diversity and individual differences.
