Spend the year exploring your creative side.  Students will have two experiences in the Arts, Ceramics and Art 4.  Time will be split between the Ceramics and Art Labs.  Students will have the opportunity to look at and make art, applying techniques and skills using different materials.  During the year, students will study the elements and principals of design.  We will think about, talk about and make judgments on works of art, including our own.  Critiques are in both verbal and written forms.

The purpose of AVID (Grades 7 & 8) is to prepare students for success in high school and college. The course has strict qualifying standards, and helps students by teaching study and organization skills, strengthening writing skills, provides tutorial help via college tutors, builds leadership potential, teaches students to work collaboratively, and provides kids a glimpse at college applications and college life.  Guest speakers share their secrets to success, and students tour Bay Area colleges.  This is a class that will most definitely set students on a successful path.

Choir

Do you like to sing?  Students will learn to read music, sing properly, and have fun working together.  No previous singing is necessary; all are welcome.  This class will teach students everything they need to know to sing in a choir.  Students will learn songs to perform and also learn about the history of music.  Music styles/genres will include everything from popular songs from musicals to 1950’s doo-wop to contemporary 'stomp' music and everything in-between!

Core Academics

New ideas. New concepts. New skills.

Middle school is when students explore core subjects more deeply and discover new interests and skills that may continue through high school and beyond. Our teachers provide strong core academic instruction through their broad knowledge of the subject matter, standards-based curriculum, and creative lesson design.
