Academic Teams

Academic teams are a unique part of the middle school experience. They give students the opportunity to grow physically and mature academically under the caring and watchful eyes of not just one teacher, as in the elementary school experience, but under the professional eyes of a team of several teachers. Other elements of the teaming experience include the following: 

  • Teaming gives students and teachers the feeling of belonging to a small group that has common goals and whose members are supportive of each other.
  • Teaming consists of a common group of students who are assigned to a common group of teachers who share a common planning time every other day.
  • Teaming holds the instructional program together on a day-to-day operational basis. It is not the elimination of departments. Departments assure there is a consistency in the curriculum.
  • Teaming results in a more productive classroom/school environment. It has a potential for dealing with effective areas (human relations, responsibility, citizenship, etc.) in which middle school students have needs.
