The foundation of the Wesley Middle School program for grades 6th through 8th is the core academic classes in English, mathematics (pre-algebra, algebra, and geometry), science (earth and space, life science, physical science), history, and Spanish. Each grade level has 36 to 40 students split in two separate sections with an average size of 18 to 20 students in each academic class. Teachers facilitate student engagement with stimulating curriculum and innovative pedagogical practice. Students develop responsibility, independence, and strong critical thinking, interpersonal, and communication skills.
Regularly scheduled physical education and a wide variety of enrichment and elective classes in music, art, performance, and technology enrich the core curriculum. Students learn and utilize crucial skills to effectively transition from lower school into middle school and successfully matriculate at a wide range of different high schools.
All families have access to an online system called Veracross, a digital grade book for teachers, in order to monitor to their children’s ongoing progress and grades. Each teacher curates a current webpage that provides important information on curriculum, assessments, and assignments.
