Middle School is a time children grow tremendously and push to gain more independence. They move from the concrete to more abstract thinking and start to question more. We aim to create a safety net around them to allow for experimentation, successes, and mistakes. We enable our students to make smart choices by giving them clear guidelines and expectations. Being respectful, prepared, productive, and always demonstrating best effort are major components of our classroom conduct goals. Our classroom experience encourages exploration, insight, and cooperation, as well as mastery of core skills and knowledge. Opportunities for school leadership and service are an integral part of our middle school experience.
