A Day in the Middle School Program

Middle School students start their year with a week-long camping trip and also travel to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival to see several plays in the fall.  Their academic day includes a ninety-minute Language Arts class using Wit and Wisdom as our core curriculum, and rotation through Science, History, and Math classes in groups of twelve to sixteen students.   After lunch with their mixed-age groups, they spend two hours in one of the five units in Project Wild.  On Friday, there are no Project Wild classes, the academic classes are slightly shorter and students go home before lunch (12:35).  Drop-in aftercare is available for K-6 students until 5:30.  Free homework help is available from 3:30-5, Monday through Thursday and from 1-3:30 on Friday.
