Middle School Profile Grades 5 – 8

The Middle School Program provides a safe environment in which students are challenged to take ownership of the development of their character and learning in order to become responsible citizens in their home, school and community

  • There are two classes per grade level, fifth through eighth.
  • Class size at fifth grade is twenty-eight students per teacher; in grades six through eight it increases to thirty students per teacher.
  • Students in grades five and six see two teachers each day for academic instruction.
  • There are three teachers that instruct students in grades seven and eight.
  • Classes meet on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday for language arts, math, social studies, and science instruction. Art is taught in 6th grade.
  • Wednesday is called a student development day and is used to support the home component of the program.
  • In addition to classroom experience, students will have a health and fitness and art contract they work on each week at home. This home component requires consistent parent participation and support, with students taking on more responsibility with each grade transition.
