Middle School Curriculum: Grades 4 to 6

Posted on October 27, 2016

SsJA’s Middle School Program consists of key transitional years that not only prepare the students academically, but also provide them with the organizational, study and note-taking skills that will enable them to become independent and responsible for themselves as they eventually move into the Jr. High. While clearly academically focused, this preparation is as equally rooted in the six core values of goodness, faith, excellence, integrity, community and service to develop strong character that will help students to make the best possible choices as they learn to navigate through life.

Our dynamic curriculum of Integrated Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Religion, Spanish, and Social Studies, are designed to inspire and challenge each and every student. Teachers work in collaborative teams to provide an integrated approach to learning. Students learn in a differentiated environment where authentic learning is critical to the instructional approach.

At the same time, the program is highly personalized and support services are available, so that each child progresses at a pace appropriate to his developmental readiness. The Middle School years are a delicate balance of providing nurturing support and guidance to students encouraging them towards their independence and taking responsibility for themselves and their actions, socially and emotionally.

The Living Enviornment

1. Living things are both similiar to and different from each other and nonliving things.

2. Organisms inherit genetic information in a variety of ways that result in continuity of structure and function between parents and offspring.

3. Individual organisms and species change over time.

4. The continuity of life is sustained through reproduction and development.

5. Organisms maintain a dynamic equilibrium that sustain life.

6. Plants and animals depend on each other and their physical enviornment. It is used for immediate growth and activity of the animal or it is stored. Some of the stored energy is released as heat energy when the organism dies and decays.

7. Human decisions and activities have changed their enviornment and the effect of those changes.

The Physical Setting

1. Many of the phenomena that we observe on Earth involve interactions among components of air, water and land.

2. Matter is made up of particles whose properties determine the observable characteristics of matter and its reactivity.

3. Energy exists in many forms and when those forms change energy is conserved.

4. Energy and matter interact through forces that result in changes in motion.
