Learning in the Middle School, which includes sixth through eighth grade, has students moving from classroom to classroom, interacting with multiple teachers who are passionate about their unique subject areas. Students are challenged to think, question, express and create, and to transform their ideas into action. Learning is experiential, hands-on, active and collaborative; it encourages leadership, cooperation, and service; and our student-centered approach recognizes learners as individuals.
The Gooden School’s 3Rs guide Middle School interactions and students develop responsibility, kindness, integrity and the courage to act. Students learn to value diversity and to acknowledge other points of view and respond in an open-minded way.
