Classroom curriculum is coupled with modern technology and media-based activities, digital texts and technology-equipped classrooms through the use of personal iPads.
The junior high leadership program helps students build skills in personal responsibility, mutual respect, and self-esteem. The use of interactive learning provides motivation for students to extend their learning beyond traditional levels of the classroom, encouraging cooperative leadership skills and constructive, independent learning. Students gain real-life connections that tie together school, home, community, and the world, teaching them to become global and critical thinkers and to find value and enjoyment in life-long learning.
Our junior high students are also exposed to a weekly leadership class, developed by our teachers, to instill key characteristics that will help them throughout their lives.
Active Living™ classes are integrated into their daily program to promote healthy-active lifestyles, as well as the opportunity to concentrate in one or more athletic or technology-based programs. For more information on the athletic options for our junior high students, please click here.
