Highlights of this philosophy are: 1)Bolstering positive school climate through the continued implementation of the Building Better People program and peer leadership. 2) Implementing a more student-friendly middle school schedule that lengthens instructional time and reduces student passing time. 3) Adopting standard grading weights so that learning and grades become synonymous. 4) Teachers working to create assessments that transcend all levels of Webb?s Depth of Knowledge beyond lower levels of recall and understanding. 5) Middle School teachers exploring the flipped classroom model, use of social media for educational purpose and the problem based learning model. 5) recruiting high-caliber professionals whose love of middle level education inspires them to utilize innovative teaching strategies and practices. We anticipate great results as the entire school community mobilizes our available resources to achieve our ambitious goals.
