Middle School (6th-8th)
It is our view at The Prep Academy that every student is unique and capable of reaching at- tainable goals. Although we press for high academic standards, we take care of the individual needs. Small class size, caring faculty, and positive peer relationships create a nurturing envi- ronment that provides stability during these years of growth and change. Our middle school program in its nature and content is a vital link as they mature from being children to young adults. Thus, our students are becoming people of character and responsible citizens to live out our vision.
At The Prep Academy we know that children come in their own individual packages and that no two children learn the same way even though the curriculum may be the same. Instruc- tional and assessment practice should be different to ensure that learning happens. This is where differentiated instruction and assessment comes in. Our teachers create a variety of entry points to ensure that student’s differing abilities, strengths, and needs are all taken into consideration. Students then have varying opportunities to demonstrate their knowledge based on the teaching.
Middle school students have the opportunity to become involved in school wide community service projects and volunteer programs.
