Middle SchoolGRADES 5-8
Each middle-school student takes four major academic subjects (English, mathematics, science and social studies). In our middle-school, grade 5 is a transitional time. Instruction occurs in a combination of self-contained and departmentalized classes which encourages the students to move from classroom to classroom. Most fifth graders and sixth graders take French or Spanish five days a week or study skills. Seventh and eighth graders take French or Spanish and/or Latin. Critical reading, enrichment reading and study skill classes are offered in the seventh and eighth grades.
Middle-school students take concomitant courses in art, computer skills, health, music and physical education. There is also a daily activities period that is used for assemblies, band or chorus rehearsals, occasional study halls and various activities.
