The middle school curriculum actively engages students in problem solving and critical thinking. Through science labs, writing conferences, cooperative learning activities, technology-based projects, experts visiting the classrooms and field experiences, students have ample opportunity to develop critical thinking skills while learning the necessary content.
Many courses are also available in the honors track. Eighth grade students can earn high school credit in several areas including math, science, health and second languages.
