Middle School Teams

Teams Glen and Rock

Our middle school teams are designed to promote experiences that support students to become academically proficient, able to navigate their world and be prepared for their future.
  • Academically Proficient - challenging all students with robust curriculum, engaging instruction, assessment, and supports to meet rigorous standards.
  • Cultural, Social and Developmental Responsive - creating learning teams of adults that foster respectful relationships to support the intellectual, social, and ethical growth of our students.
  • Future Ready - providing a variety of experiences that encourage students to begin to look to their future to explore various career options, including Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM), and the preparation necessary to produce high quality work and achieve success in the world of high school. 
To facilitate our work each grade level is divided into two teams (Team Glen and Team Rock). The team is the foundation for a strong learning community characterized by a sense of family. Core subjects of language arts, mathematics, science and social studies are taught on the team. Students and teachers on the team become well acquainted, feel safe, respected, and supported, and are encouraged to take intellectual risks. Teachers on teams take advantage of opportunities to vary the use of time, space, staff, and grouping arrangements to achieve success for every student. Academic Supports and extensions for students who demonstrate the need for further challenge are typically delivered on the team.
