To help with the transition into middle school, 6th grade students are divided into four homerooms so that homeroom teachers can focus on the cognitive, as well as the affective development, of a child this age. Students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades have eight different classes each day with a separate teacher for each subject. Furthermore, throughout the middle school years, teachers help students with social and organizational skills, in addition to the accelerated academic information. We have a multi-material approach to instruction that encourages group work, collaboration, and an experiential approach to instruction along with the traditional school program. In addition to regularly scheduled P.E., Spanish and computer classes, students choose between art, music, drama, speech, computer, and physical work out/study hall for elective classes two days per week.
