Middle School : Grades 5-8
Middle School can be a difficult time for many students. By pairing down the class size to 8, Educational Harbor helps students stay focused in this stressful time. We eliminate grades and place the focus on learning. Students are encouraged to choose learning programs that are suited to their style and interests, while still exposing them to hands-on group work that will keep them engaged with others. Students are exposed to Christian apologetics and character development through hearing Bible stories during our "morning meetings." Our history and science curriculum is taught through a Christian worldview. Students who are ready can begin taking middle school classes in 5th grade.
We have two schedules available for middle schoolers:
4-day class is held Monday - Thursday from 9:30-1:00 with lunch, recess, tutoring and specials
2-day class is held Tuesday and Thursday from 9:30-3:30 with tutoring and specials on M/W
We allow students to begin earning high school credit as early as eighth grade depending on maturity and academic levels.
Books recently read in our middle school: "Hatchet," "The Uglies," and "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe."
