Our Middle School is semi-departmentalized. Our program provides a broad survey of academic subjects which builds on the foundational knowledge and skills learned in elementary school and prepares students for the depth and specialization of high school. In Middle School, students survey all of history, all the Bible, the main branches of science, and multiple genres of literature. They review the foundations of math and are exposed to various fine arts. This broad and wide academic exposure combines with new opportunities for spiritual growth, leadership development, and outlets for discovering their talents to create major transformation during these years.
The usual sequence of courses taken at the middle school level is:
Grade 6- English, Ancient World History, Mathematics 6, Science, Old Testament I, Hungarian Language, Organization, Educational Technology, Health, Physical Education, Band and Choir
Grade 7- English, Medieval World History, Mathematics 7 or Pre-Algebra, Science, Old Testament II, Hungarian Language, Educational Technology, Health, Physical Education, Art, Choir or Band
Grade 8- English, Modern World History, Pre-Algebra or Algebra I, Science, New Testament, Hungarian Culture, Educational Technology, Health, Physical Education, Choir or Band, Robotics, Communications
MAP, or the Measure of Academic Progress, is a computerized adaptive test which helps teachers, parents, and administrators improve learning for all students and make informed decisions to promote a child's academic growth. All middle school students are tested 2-3 times per year in Reading, Math, Language, and Science.
