Our Middle School at CALE offers a nurturing and supportive environment where students can solidify essential skills before transitioning to High School, all while empowering them to become leaders of their own learning.
Our committed team of educators and staff members work tirelessly to create an inclusive and engaging learning environment. We believe that every student possesses unique talents and abilities, and our goal is to empower them to discover their full potential. Through a comprehensive curriculum, we offer a well-rounded education that encompasses not only core subjects but also extracurricular activities, allowing students to explore various interests and develop a diverse range of skills.
The CALE Difference For Middle School Students
At CALE, we prioritize addressing any gaps in students' foundational skills. When students join us, we ensure they have a strong foundation in reading and math. If any gaps are identified, targeted interventions will be provided to support their progress.
Throughout the day, students engage in an integrated approach to academics. They continue to benefit from the multi-age learning environment, allowing them to master standards in their learning progression. Moreover, they apply these skills across various content areas, delving deeper into the study of subjects like science and social studies. Our STEM approach fosters hands-on learning experiences that are engaging and enriching.
Middle school students must learn how to manage their day and their time. These skills are necessary not only for school, but also as they prepare for higher education and ultimately, the workforce. We intentionally make this part of our focus at CALE.
Nurturing Social-Emotional Growth
We recognize that navigating friendships and interpersonal dynamics can be challenging at any age. Therefore, we prioritize social-emotional growth by providing opportunities for students to learn how to effectively communicate, problem-solve, and work through difficulties. Our students are encouraged to meet challenges head-on, developing resilience and the necessary tools to navigate tough situations. We work collaboratively with parents to foster independence, communication, and self-advocacy skills.
