Instead of electives, middle school students take Pathway courses to better help them prepare for the real world. There are six Pathway courses that include health, Microsoft Office, public speaking, engineering, personal finance, and robotics. In addition to the Pathway courses students also work to master their organizational and managerial skills. By the time they are about to leave middle school, they are ready and eager to tackle technology, while still learning how to manage the overwhelming amount of information available at their fingertips. They utilize with great fluency student computers and interactive devices in their classrooms.
Middle school students continue their multilingual education in two or three languages, work with mathematical algorithms, take elective courses, compete in music, travel for Model UN, perform in the theater, play sports, have wonderful field experiences, and demonstrate high levels of confidence and social compassion. They are active in the community and participate in multiple extra-curricular.
