Middle School Tribes


A community of teachers and students whose main purpose is to encourage one another while creating positive social relationships. The MS Tribe is a new initiative to build relationships between middle school students, teachers, and staff members. Through weekly gatherings, all members build relationships through devotionals, icebreakers, community outreach, and more.




Language Arts


Our language arts curriculum includes high level reading comprehension such as: fiction, nonfiction, poetry, essay writing and general command of the English language.




Math


Our math curriculum offers two areas of study. For students who are ready to take on a more challenging math program, we offer a high school Algebra class for middle school students. Our Regular Math Program Math computations and concepts are taught using an integrated approach. Students in Sixth Grade begin with Course 2 and move on to Course 3. Eighth Grade students learn middle school algebra, which combines prealgebra and algebra together to give students strong algebraic foundation for high school math. Mastery of basic math concepts as well as higher level thinking are emphasized in each class. For Eligible 8th Grade Students We have established our criteria for Eighth Grade students to earn a high school credit. This criterion meets the standards for both public and private high schools. Students who are going to public high school are still required to take and pass the Algebra I EOC which is a state requirement. Please contact Mrs. Lucas for specific qualifications.




Science


The goal of our middle school science program is to give students an in-depth look at earth science, life science and physical science within a Biblical framemwork. Our curriculum gives students the opportunity to explore the world around them through observation, investigating, theorizing and more. Students receive an enhanced approach to learning through hands-on lab work and engaging classroom activities.




Social Studies


Our social studies program deepens students' understanding of the world around them while increasing their knowledge of America's beginnings and present. Many lessons in world history, civics and American history allow for important class discussions related to the the long-term, world-wide impact governmental decisions have on everyone. Our goal is to sharpen students' minds and engage them in critically thinking about important topics that greatly affect present and future generations.

Program Overview


Parkway Christian School’s Middle School program strives to provide the highest level of education to ensure that each one of our students reaches their optimum potential. Our educators provide a plethora of learning experiences that go far beyond the textbook. These experiences include differentiated instruction, activities that appeal to the multiple intelligences, and scenarios that will prepare them for real life situations. Parkway Christian’s philosophy is to guide and educate the “whole child”. Parkway uses a modified block schedule for the four core classes with two meeting every other day for an hour and twenty minutes and 45 minute classes for elective and non-core classes meeting every other day.
