Team Concept

Unlike elementary school classes, students in middle school are assigned to four-person teams. Students coming from district sixth grade centers will have experience with the team concept at that level as well. The teams are interdisciplinary and integrate the four core subject areas of English Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies. Each teacher on the team shares the same group of students and team teachers share a common conference and plan periods so they can meet together with parents, discuss objectives and instructional strategies and plan team activities. Teams encourage a sense of community and belonging among the students, easing the transition from elementary to sixth grade to middle school.
