Middle School Curriculum

In March of 2020, Governor Walz implemented a Distance Learning Period for all Minnesota school districts, which continued through the end of the 2019-20 school year.

The Distance Learning Info page will be updated as we plan for the 2020-21 school year.

Our middle schools challenge our students to become: 

  • inquiring, lifelong learners with the skills to succeed in the interconnected world of the 21st century
  • engaged citizens who take action in their local, national, and global communities
  • compassionate, respectful, and persevering young people

Within a caring environment that supports students' academic, social, and emotional needs, students are challenged to see the connections between learning and the world around them.
