Middle School is an important transition before Upper School. We offer a challenging curriculum to prepare students for what comes next.

Curriculum

Junior High / Middle School

Science

The Einstein Academy’s Junior High science program focuses on developing the skills necessary for success in rigorous, upper-level science coursework at The Einstein Academy. Students often complete freshman-level coursework as early as 7th and 8th grade, challenging the students to achieve greater successes and preparing them to enter high school ahead of the standard. Teachers utilize current NGSS standards to guide curriculum and instruction.   

Social Studies/Political Science

This integrated study assists students in developing informed decisions for the public good as citizens.They are challenged to think critically while learning facets of American Government and History.

Advisory

Students participate in a weekly advisory class where they discuss social-emotional issues, college readiness, giving back to the community, and goal setting.

Physical Education

The physical education program at The Einstein Academy focuses on building community and health awareness in developing children. Students engage in fitness testing, team building, outdoor activities, and team sports.  

l

Language Arts

Students are challenged to complete the objectives of a standard 9th grade curriculum by the completion of 8th grade. They focus on learning the defining features of fiction and non-fiction. Preparing for debates and discussions helps expand their understanding of academic writing, leading to the completion of argumentative essays and research papers. Students create presentations that cite strong textual evidence to support claims and reasoning.

Math

The junior high math program allows the students of The Einstein Academy to be challenged according to their ability level. Students work at their own pace with the guidance of the instructor to complete above grade level work. Junior high students are then able to enter high school having completed at least Algebra I.

Foreign Language

Our aim is to make the acquisition of Latin possible for all kinds of learners.  In order to do that, we affirm that Latin is a language like any other with its level of inflection.  We affirm that anyone who wants to acquire ability in Latin can do so if offered an approach which employs principles of best practice in language acquisition.  We do begin using the Cambridge Latin course in the middle school, but this approach is supplemented with various other pedagogies, including CI and TPRS.

Middle School Events

The middle school participates in the following curriculum events and academic competitions.
