Dear Middle School Parents,
Welcome to our Middle School web page. Here you will find information that will familiarize you with our educational philosophy. We provide a quality education to our students by focusing on skills for critical thinking, collaboration, creativity and communication. Each of the content areas in grades 6-8 is staffed with highly qualified, dedicated and creative teachers. Our classes are relatively small, averaging 20 students, and the instruction takes place during 85 minute block periods so that students have sufficient time to build meaning and understanding. Technology is an essential tool for learning and communication in the Middle School. Our classrooms are arranged in ways that encourage and enhance cooperative learning so you will often find groups of students huddled around tables or laptops or stretched out on carpets collaborating in a culture of inquiry and critical thinking. Our teachers are incorporating 21st Century models of teaching which promote among other things, global citizenship and media literacy skills that will prepare our students for a rapidly changing world.
Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about us. I hope that you enjoy browsing through the links on this page and that the information you find is informative and meaningful.
