Middle School

Middle School Program – Overview for Grades 6 through 8

The curriculum for the Middle School (grades 6th, 7th & 8th) prepares students with the knowledge and skills necessary for advanced academic instruction in high school. This curriculum is made up of six basic fields of study, two of which belong to the Spanish Program (Spanish Language Studies and Dominican Social Studies).

For students who have no knowledge of Spanish, or whose command of that language is not up to par, there is an alternate program for the teaching of Spanish as a Second Language (SSL). Any student interested in this program should contact the Middle School/High School Principal or the School Psychologist. Seventh grade subjects have linked a sample course syllabus.
