Academic Life: 6th Grade - Elevate 6
Elevate 6 is designed to make the transition to Middle School easier on both the student and parents. It is a gradual transition to Middle School, where students remain with only 6th grade students but still rotate through classes and experience learning from different teachers. This allows us to incorporate learning strategies like organization, time-management, and digital citizenship, so that students learn how to be responsible for their own education.
Students take seven classes a semester and classes are 48 minutes long and meet every day throughout the school year. Our classrooms are set for a traditional learning environment and beginning in 6th grade, students will have access to the school’s Mac Computer Lab.
Academic Life: 7th and 8th Grade
After Elevate 6, students move into a more traditional Middle School program for the 7th and 8th grades. With a strong foundation underneath them, students are ready for additional responsibilities such as being involved in a rigorous curriculum designed to prepare our students for success in High School. They also learn to manage a schedule and understand with greater independence, comes greater expectations.
Students take seven classes a semester and classes are 48 minutes long and meet every day throughout the school year. In 7th grade, students also have the opportunity to participate in student clubs, such as National Junior Honor Society, and student government. Our students may also participate in MAIS interscholastic sports.
