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 four teachers that instruct students in grades seven and eight.
  • Classes meet on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday for English language arts, math, social studies, and science instruction.
  • Wednesday is called an “off-site learning day” and is used to support the home component of the program.
