Our Mission Statement
The Magnet Middle School respects the unique characteristics and individuality of emerging adolescents. Our staff, in partnership with parents and students, strives to develop independent and responsible learners in both heterogeneous and homogeneous groupings. Through our unique school culture, we address the physical, social, and emotional needs that further intellectual development.
While using an interdisciplinary approach to learning, special emphasis is placed on math, science, and technology. The school is strongly committed to implementing the principles of the Carnegie Foundation Report and the Coalition of Essential Schools.
Our school was founded as a magnet middle school with an emphasis
on science, technology and math. The
goal of the Magnet Middle School is to involve students in a learning partnership
with the school, home, and community in order to insure success for all students.
The Magnet Middle School is comprised of sixth, seventh, and eighth grade
students and is based on the following beliefs; high standards for all students,
trust, respect, and collaboration.
Our curriculum is delivered mainly through interdisciplinary topics and projects usually with heterogeneous and homogeneous groupings of students. Teams of teachers are responsible for scheduling and grouping students within blocks of time. Assessment of our students is an on-going process. Evaluative measures used by the teachers are observations, portfolios, performance-based assessment, and testing.
