6th - 8th Grade

Middle school is a time of personal growth and discovery. Students have the skills to nurture their academic strengths and interests, exploring complex ideas in all subject areas. Building on previous knowledge and skills, children can apply higher-level thinking to reach beyond the classroom. They analyze and question the world around them, as they prepare for high-school, college and careers. Equipped with a solid moral and academic foundation, students are ready to succeed.

Children read and write across a variety of genres. Using higher-level thinking skills, students interpret meaning, draw conclusions and make inferences. They plan, write and edit stories, essays and research papers. With a solid foundation in grammar and usage, students begin to develop their unique voice and style. Thoughtful discussions provide children an opportunity to express opinions, ideas and critiques. Our school uses Open Court Reading & Step Up To Writing to support instruction.

We're More than Academics

We promote an enriched learning environment because it's a significant part of what differentiates us. We bring virtues such as respect, perseverance, compassion, and courage to every detail of our academic focus. These characteristics are essential to the success of young students today — and to the adults they become tomorrow. 

  • We created a curriculum specifically around Moral Focus.
  • We celebrate a “virtue of the month” every month.
  • Our students create a class contract where students agree how to treat their teacher and each other.
  • Students are recognized and celebrated for how they live out Moral Focus every day.

Parent

I love the emphasis on moral focus each month. Not only is my child receiving an education, but you are also teaching her qualities to be a good person.

Confidence Leads to Student Excellence

Pembroke Academy gives every child the right challenges at the the right time. This allows us to create an enriched learning environment that raises both expectations and academic excellence. When this environment is combined with moral focus, parental partnership, and student responsibility, the end result is really just the beginning toward a lifetime of success.
