In middle school, students transition from the mostly single classroom
environment of elementary to the secondary school world of multiple classrooms.
Middle school is also a time of intellectual, spiritual, and social transitions.
The middle school academic program provides the bridge between the strong
academic foundations of the elementary school and the college preparatory
focus on critical thinking and application of learning in the high school.
Each year, the core subjects of English, math, science, and history prepare
students for advanced study through practical applications and hands on
experiences. Bible classes and chapels help students understand and own
their faith. Students begin to explore their unique gifts and develop
their talents through electives in performing and visual arts, practical
arts, and world languages (Spanish and Chinese). Physical education completes
the focus on developing the whole person.
