The 1st and 2nd cycles of Middle School offer an opportunity to consolidate academic material learned in previous stages while providing an exciting programme of studies that encourage Public Speaking, STEAM skills, and Creative Arts interests.
Middle School is a period of great transition. In the Middle School environment, the curriculum encourages a more in-depth investigation into learning material, enhancing the capacity for abstraction and application. In addition, Middle School students refine their organisation and collaboration abilities while showing responsibility in their research to account for ethical requirements.
The 6th and 7th grades constitute the 1st cycle of Middle School and are periods of change and adaptation. At this point, Middle School learners start to take responsibility for their learning practices and contribute to resolving any issues. Understanding how to study and when to ask for help is part of the growth process and is just as important as subject learning. Educators and families must be committed to adopting the elements outlined in the 'Respect' value to help maintain a safe and welcoming community and prevent bullying.
The 8th and 9th grades constitute the second cycle of Middle School. In this cycle, great friendships are formed. School and families are responsible for fostering an environment where the 'Goodness' value is the basis of these friendships. In addition, in the Middle School community, the 'Excellence' and 'Responsibility' values are further emphasised.
