12-Year-Olds and 13-Year-Olds
This program meets the special needs of students in the 12- to 13-year-olds age group. Students take a rigorous academic program of English (Reading and Writing Literacy), Mathematics, Science, Cultural Studies, Art, Music, Drama, Physical Education, Foreign Language (French, German, or Bosnian-Serbian-Croatian) and Computer Application. Students in age levels 12–13 take on increased responsibilities such as managing lockers, the introduction of different classrooms, class periods, and homework journals with which they are expected to prepare for the transition to Secondary school. After-school activities are provided all year and are geared toward the interests of the students.
Middle school is such an exciting time in the life of any student. We understand that middle school students stand on the bridge between childhood and young adulthood, and we know it takes a caring, structured approach to guide the middle school student toward success that they will carry with them to the secondary school.
