Middle School

TAS Middle School serves students in grades 6-8 (typically ages 11-14). We believe learners at this age need a unique blend of guidance, challenge, and opportunity to achieve their full potential. In addition to social emotional support provided by the faculty and the cognitive learning progressions embedded in the American content standards, the TAS Middle School experience is focused on empowering students to assume responsibility for their own learning.   

Units of study are based uniformly upon our adopted American content standards and developed utilizing the Understanding by Design (UbD) format. Our aim is to provide students with engaging, meaningful learning experiences that consistently require the students to be reflective, self-directed, and responsible for their contributions to the learning community.
