The Middle School at St. John the Evangelist School—which includes Grades 5-8—promotes high school preparation. Students are challenged to think critically and to solve complex problems. Working collaboratively, students organize information, data, 发现, and results across academic subjects, and learn to communicate effectively using a variety of media. Project-based learning develops the skills necessary to work individually and with others on tasks of greater complexity over longer timeframes.
The full standard curriculum dives into World and US History, 西班牙语, 代数1, 算术, 文学, Religion and more. Students also engage in developing the cultural competence to enable them to work effectively with diverse groups in diverse settings. Upon 8th Grade graduation, students have developed a mindset that directs their own learning. They can transfer knowledge in core academic subjects to other situations successfully. St. John the Evangelist Catholic Middle School students are accepted at and attend a wide variety of strong high schools in the area. They are well-prepared and ready for the challenges that high school presents.
