Information for Families
We believe in a middle school concept that provides a smaller school-within-a-school feel through academic teams, a daily advisory period for social skill development and strong elective and exploratory classes. All students and academic teachers form teams for both grade levels. Each team consists of groups of students taught by the same teachers for math, language arts, reading, science and social studies. The goal of each team is to support student learning by increasing communication and planning integrated units. Teachers on each team meet weekly for team planning. Our goal is to provide the best education during an age where students face difficult social challenges. We look forward to working with you to continue developing our students into future leaders.
