Middle School Education

The importance of creating the appropriate school environments, curriculum designs, and classroom teaching strategies that best support the intellectual, emotional, and social growth of early adolescents are emphasized throughout Lesley's middle school programs. This includes heterogeneous grouping, integrated studies that correlate with national standards, classroom management techniques that create a community of self-monitoring learners, interdisciplinary teacher teams, community-based projects, small learning communities, differentiated assessment practices, and parental involvement. Programs are offered on campus and at selected off-campus sites.
