Online Middle School Curriculum (Grade 6th – 8th)
For students, middle school serves as a transition between elementary school and high school. Typically middle school involves grades 6 through 8 and is sometimes referred to as junior high school or just junior high.
This is where students are introduced to an entirely new way of learning. In contrast to the teaching format of elementary school, students are allowed to opt for subjects in addition to the standard curriculum comprising English, Math, Science and Social Studies. These additional subjects are called Elective Courses. Students typically switch classrooms and teachers depending on the classes they have opted for.
The primary objective here is to help students develop a sense of independence by allowing them more autonomy in terms of choosing the subjects they wish to study. Also, not being confined to one single classroom offers them a constant change of environment that in some ways can prevent mundane routine.
As a child progresses through the education system, the entire learning process can get quite tedious. Not all students have the same capabilities, which is why a one-size-fits-all approach may not be the best way to impart education to students after elementary school.
At Forest Trail Academy, we understand this need and acknowledge the need for customized learning platforms. This is why we have implemented a special prescriptive/adaptive program that caters to students with special needs. This is an easy-to-use, self-paced learning system that has been designed with the sole objective of helping a wide range of students achieve proficiency academically.
This program meets requirements laid down by the No Child Left behind Act for improving student achievement. By aligning modern technology with state academic standards, Forest Trail Academy provides a platform for both remediation and instruction. With a view to enforcing learning as a lifelong process, this program is ideal for at-risk or learning disabled students.
