The middle school, by nature of its transitional position between elementary and high school, offers students the framework for gradual change in emotional, social, intellectual and physical characteristics. The middle school program includes:

-An instructional program with flexibility to meet the needs of all students
-A basic skills curriculum taught in all subject areas
-Teachers and support staff sensitive to the wide range of intellectual, physical, psychological and social developmental needs of students
-Opportunities for participation in social and athletic activities
-Recognition for academic and co-curricular achievement
-A close partnership between home and school

All middle school students need to be responsible for meeting high academic standards. As we continue to move toward content area standards and performance benchmarks, strengthening our promotion requirements is an important part of the overall program.
