Middle School

The Middle School was established in 2014 to provide our educational model to students in grades 6-8. Our mission is to develop students’ abilities, talents, and interests through literacy, exploration, communication, organization, and wellness objectives.

AIM  c
We focus on abilities rather than disabilities by building on our students' strengths. It is our philosophy to meet the students where they are and take them to the next level according to how they learn. Strong teacher-student relationships, small classes, assistive technology, and accommodations make this possible.
