The middle school program strives to encourage independent and critical thinking across all subject areas. Each student is viewed as an individual who brings different experiences, ideas, interests, and learning styles to the classroom. Students take on a more active role in organizing and planning their daily school routine, taking ownership of their learning experience as well as understanding their role as leaders within the school community. Collaboration and creative thought are encouraged as students participate in real-world discussions and problem-solve.
Students can choose one of four workshops: Technology Trends, Drama, Woodshop, and Math + Art = String Art.
Students work in groups by grade level to solve and construct three engineering challenges. Past challenges have included bridge construction, rockets, parachute egg drop, glider planes, and catapults to name a few. Students then compete at grade level.
