5-6 Academic Programs

The New York State Board of Regents has set higher learning standards for all students. Students at the middle level continue to build on the knowledge, skills and understandings taught at the elementary level preparing all students for Regents level course work in high school. Each student’s progress is measured against State and District standards. Students are given a variety of local and state assessment at different grade levels. These assessments help us determine what students know and are able to do at different points in time. We can then provide academic intervention services (AIS) as needed.

Teaching Teams

Our school employs a teaching team concept and we address student needs in curricular areas. Teachers in grades five are self-contained and sixth grade teachers team in Math, Science and Social Studies. Students remain with their home base teacher for English Language Arts. In seventh and eighth grades, teachers team in area of Math, Science, English/Language Arts, and History. These teachers share the same students and have common planning time. Teachers specializing in these areas will also teach physical education, music, art, health, computers, Spanish, home and career skills and technology.
