Students are placed on grade level academic teams. The team concept benefits students by providing support in the transition between elementary school and middle school. Teachers on each team have a common planning period, which they use daily to ensure that student successes are recognized, student concerns are addressed, and interdisciplinary planning is implemented.
Teams design interdisciplinary activities that make connections between content areas and increase the relevance of the curriculum. Grade level teams consist of academic teachers, guidance counselor, special education, and any assistants that are needed.
