Middle School Highlights
Junior High Concept
Students at SMS have four core classes; ELA, Mathematics, Social Studies and Science. Additionally, they have two encore classes that enrich their academic experiences. Encore options for students include Spanish, Technology, Visual Media, Strategies Games and Puzzles, Art, Physical Education and STEM, as well as Band and Choir.
Students at SMS attend class in a block schedule format. Each block is 90 minutes long with students attending three classes per day. Students start and end each school day with E4S (Essentials 4 Success). This time is designed to supplement their academic experience with adequate time for SEL (Social-Emotional Learning) curriculum, as well as academic remediation and/or extension opportunities.
Capturing Kids Hearts
Relationships are essential in middle school. We have all teaching staff trained in the Capturing Kids Hearts process. This is intended to assist in developing a safe, caring, orderly and self managing school community. We fully understand that kids don't care what you know until they know that you care.
