middle YEARS PROGRAMME

Grade 6 – GRADE 8

As stated in IB MYP From Principles into Practice, "The MYP has been designed as a coherent and comprehensive curriculum framework that provides academic challenge and develops the life skills of students from the ages of 11 to 16. These years are a critical period in the development of young people. Success in school is closely related to personal, social and emotional well-being. At a time when students are establishing their identity and building their self-esteem, the MYP can motivate students and help them to achieve success in school and in life beyond the classroom. The programme allows students to build on their personal strengths and to embrace challenges in subjects in which they might not excel. The MYP offers students opportunities to develop their potential, to explore their own learning preferences, to take appropriate risks, and to reflect on, and develop, a strong sense of personal identity."

At St. Luke School we offer an Advisory program that matches students with a teacher to navigate the social emotional demand of middle school. As socially responsible people, service learning is an essential component of the advisory program and a connection to living their faith.

Our seventh and eight graders participate in an elective program that includes coding, art, service cooking, Spanish design, drama, and choir.

Last week, parent Dawn Locke spoke to the 8th Graders about government accountability and the role of the GAO ( Government Accountability Office). This office serves as a congressional watchdog and provides nonpartisan, objective, fact-based information to Congress.
