Middle school is where each student begins to guide their own discovery, constructing meaning from information, instruction, and experience. In the classroom, the teacher functions more in a guiding, supportive role than in the role of the disseminator of information. Opportunities for student choice, self-direction, and responsibility are available on a daily basis. Students learn interpersonal skills and the importance of community; they are valued and accepted, and, in return, learn to value and accept one another.
A wide range or academic and developmental skills are typically seen in Middle school. AISN is responsive to the needs of adolescents as they make the tricky transition from childhood to being a teenager. High academic standards, support, and encouragement prepare each student to be successful in High school.
Our teachers understand that they are preparing students to be successful in high school while making sure that each student is challenged to grow and mature as an individual. Each student receives the proper support and motivation needed to reach their learning potential from a dedicated group of educators.
