School Notes

  • Middle school students in grades 6-8 follow the curriculum guidelines for the state of Pennsylvania, but are also enriched with study skills, organization, written expression and an emphasis on reading comprehension for each subject studied. The skills taught in middle school continue through secondary classes with an emphasis on critical thinking, understanding themselves as learners while using technology as a tool throughout classes.
