The includes courses from grades six through eight. Most students attend classes with others in their own grade. However, if a student demonstrates advanced ability in a particular academic area he may be assigned to a class in another grade. Our goal is to allow students to advance as far as they can, as fast as they can, while maintaining a high level of achievement.We believe that all students can achieve at their grade level if provided the proper support and structure. Indeed, that is what we do so very well. Therefore, we assign students to classes based on their grade and achievement then do what we must to assure success.Classes in the middle school are small, averaging ten students.
Course offerings for middle school students include Communication Arts (English and Reading), Social Studies, Math, and Science. English as a Second Language (ESL) is provided to international students needing additional support. Elective courses offered included Art, Drama, and Music (both vocal and instrumental). Physical Education is offered to sixth grade students as a class. Mandatory athletics throughout the school year fulfill the physical education requirement for seventh and eighth grade students.We know that students work best when they are actively engaged in meaningful learning.
We strive to challenge our students daily and expect their best. We are especially focused on the appropriate use of technology to enhance learning among the cadets. We believe the One-to-One program
will spark academic achievement and we look forward to expanding this program in the near future.
