The energy of learning is apparent in St. Paul’s Middle School classes. It takes motivational and challenging curriculum, the strong moral values of a Christian-based education and the guidance of experienced Christian teachers to show our students how to become responsible and independent learners. Our middle school is a three-year sequence for grades six through eight.
Our curriculum starts with the study in core academic subjects: English/writing, math, science, history, and religion. This core education is then enriched through classes in visual art, music, technology, and physical education plus our recognized “Seminar” program. Technology and the use of Chromebook computers are woven throughout the curriculum and instruction.
Middle school students are encouraged to participate in the various life-enriching activities offered at St. Paul, including competitive sports, community service programs and more.
St. Paul Westlake’s Middle School academic program emphasizes a respect for diverse learning styles, team and interdisciplinary teaching, and varied experiences with cooperative learning, research, and group presentations. Our teachers create opportunities for cognitive growth while incorporating exploratory experiences for enrichment, as they prepare students for a smooth transition to high school and beyond.
