The Middle School is departmentalized with subject area experts in each discipline. The classrooms are equipped with either a Promethean interactive white board or a document camera. Middle School students are issued their own Chromebook computer as part of the middle school curriculum. Our hands-on approach to learning includes curriculum enhancing field trips, and science labs. Download the Middle School Handbook HERE.
