Our staff has worked continually to improve our middle school philosophy and structure. We are organized into teaching teams. Sixth grade students are members of a team which offers students a transition year from an elementary setting. Students spend most of their day with a homeroom teacher and leave that classroom for exploratory, physical education, and music electives.
Seventh and eighth graders are on multi-year, multi-age teams. Seventh graders are assigned to one of three teams and remain with that team for two years. One of the goals of this design is to offer continuity for students, parents, and teachers. Teachers from different subject areas work together to design curriculum units and activities which are often interrelated. Students leave their team for foreign language, exploratory, physical education, and music electives.
