Middle School

Middle School is a unique and important time for student development. Our Middle Schools put an emphasis on developing the whole child. Negotiating friendships, their place in the world and academic achievement are all included in the Middle School experience. 

Parents are an important part of this journey. We welcome your questions and requests for support. 

English Language Arts 6-8: 

In the middle grades, English and reading courses become more diversified; all students continue to experience a broad spectrum of skills and strategies in the reading/English/language arts curriculum. These grade levels place a strong emphasis on the development of good work and study habits.

The personal involvement of the individual student in the learning process is again an important element of effective instruction in the middle grades. As the sophistication of materials and tasks grows more complex, frequent drafting of written pieces in various modes, conferencing with peers and/or the teacher, reading a variety of materials and genres, responding to reading and writing in various ways, word processing as well as using computers for information management purposes, and oral presentations all help the student become more adept at communicating effectively. Active involvement in the learning process is essential for students to gain the most success in the middle-level English/Language Arts program.  

Mathematics 6-8

The mathematics curriculum is based upon the  PA Common Core standards. To access the PA Core State Standards visit www.pdesas.org/CMap/CFramework To access the Common Core State Standards for Math visit www.corestandards.org/Math

The ultimate goal of the teaching and learning of mathematics is to foster student enthusiasm and curiosity through growth in understanding of mathematical theory. We foster student abilities to reason logically, problem solve and exhibit a disposition to persevere with real-life problem solving situations.
