Our Middle School Philosophy
The philosophy behind the Midd-West Middle Schools is to provide:
1. A quality academic core of courses.
2. A smooth transition from elementary school to high school.
3. An exploration core of courses to provide students with the experiences necessary to select a high school pathway curriculum.
THE ACADEMIC CORE
A strong, well-rounded, standards-based core education in Reading, English, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies which provides students the foundation for developing abilities to learn and solve problems and leads to knowledge and confidence to be successful in life.
Transition in middle school is a gradual weaning from adult dependence to decision makers and independent learners by providing support and opportunities for students to grow academically, emotionally and socially.
Students will explore areas outside the academic core to discover their unique talents and abilities in order to become well-rounded, enriched individuals and foster future areas of study and career interest.
