We believe strongly that sixth grade students are in the “middle” of their middle level experience. In order to be successful in the 21st century our students must practice self-confidence, self-challenge, adaptability, and flexibility. We hope that by experiencing these practices they will see the world in new ways. This foundation will enhance the rest of their middle level journey.
