Academic Teams

Middle School

At the Middle School, all students are placed on one of four teams with each team sharing

the same core teachers. Each team consists of teachers in English, math, science, and

social studies. One of these teachers serves as the student’s homeroom teacher, also known

as their prime group. There are approximately seventy students on each team.

Each team of teachers meets on a regular basis to plan team activities and communicate

about how to best serve the needs of our students.

Ninth Grade 

Ninth grade students will be organized into two core teams. We have built a teaming structure to support students as they transition from middle to high school. These teams include students’ math, English language arts, social studies, and science teachers, as well as guidance counselors and special educators. Ninth grade students will follow the high school schedule with an A/B rotation and 84 minute classes. All ninth graders are required to take Health Ed, PE, and may take foreign language, fine arts, other electives as time permits.
