JGS Middle School, grades 6, 7 & 8
In many ways, Jones-Gordon’s Middle School seems like a traditional middle school model. Rotating throughout the school day, our students enjoy diverse subject matter and varied teaching styles. Unlike conventional middle schools, however, our students benefit from small class sizes with a maximum 10:1 student-to-teacher ratio. By developing key executive function skills (organization, planning, time management, etc.), fostering students’ confidence and independence, and offering daily FLEX Hours for remediation, acceleration, and/or enrichment, our students have successfully transitioned to high school and continued their studies with consistent success.
Our 21st century learners also use technology in the Specials classroom. Students use the coding and graphic design skills they develop in class to create visual projects such as advertisements, blueprints, coats of arms, magazines, and even their own inventions.
PHYSICAL EDUCATION: Indoor and outdoor exercise and physical fitness activities keep minds and bodies active.
“Gone are the days when homework was a struggle, reading was frustrating and spelling was impossible. Now we have days that are filled with endless possibilities and smiles!”
