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 the Holt Reader © program to support instruction.

We're More than Academics

We believe that strong hearts and minds impact the world in amazing ways. For this reason, we teach moral focus in every lesson. They are so meaningful to us that we celebrate them every day as a community, with songs, skits and performances. We practice each virtue daily through:
 

  • Social contracts where we pledge to support and encourage each other.

  • Our CHAMPS classroom management system where children learn social responsibility.

  • Community outreach like our Cougars Care trip to Ronald McDonald House.

I recently volunteered for my daughter's class field trip to Art Prize in Grand Rapids. I am not sure who learned more - me or the kids! The Art Prize artists were so kind sharing the stories of their artwork with the kids. The kids were tasked with choosing one of their school's virtues like compassion, perseverance, or wisdom to match with the artist's piece.
