The Middle School Program (Class VI to VIII) at FWS is designed to support optimal learning for the young adolescent. Specifically, the Sixth Grade program provides its students the opportunity to transition to the middle school culture. Teachers of this grade focus on helping students in the areas of organization, study skills, and basic strategies designed to help the students identify their learning style and how they learn best in order to prepare for the future middle school courses. Students are encouraged to become active participants in their learning journey. The Seventh Grade program continues with the development of the whole child as it builds on the foundation begun in sixth grade. Students in the seventh grade refine and develop skills and strategies learned in sixth grade as they are encouraged to think more critically and more deeply about the material being covered. Class participation and discussion become key skills as students further develop higher order and abstract thinking skills. The Eighth Grade program provides experiences and opportunities for students to develop skills and strategies both to culminate their development in the previous Middle School grades and to prepare for high school. Writing, discussion, project planning, organization, critical thinking, and creative expression are all emphasized to ensure competency in preparation for their future academic endeavors.
