Junior High (6-8)
Junior High School
We have a departmentalized junior high school for students in grades 6-8. Each grade rotates after two hours of block instruction. Students take language arts, math, science, Spanish, religion, computers, history, and physical education. Interactive whiteboards are used in the middle school classrooms. Eighth grade students can participate in Student Council, yearbook, and are leaders of their student “families”.
The junior high program is focused on preparing our students for high school, college, and beyond! Jr. high students have access to a rich, diverse, and rigorous education. Language Arts classes provide a strong emphasis on the writing process and strengthening a love for reading. Science instruction allows students to construct scientific understanding through exploration and experimentation. Mathematical problem solving skills are strengthened through the implementation of the common core curriculum. History and Religion are experienced through the use of thinking maps, Cornell notes, and alongside projects that make their learning relevant and meaningful.
