Middle School 4-5
The middle school at St. John Berchmans begins to departmentalize but still focuses on self-contained classes in 4th and 5th grade. Students start their day off with morning meetings, making the classroom more than just their daily learning environment, but also a close-knit community. We use the Responsive Classroom model to create a positive learning environment for all. Additionally, students at the middle school level switch classes for math, social studies, and language arts. Beyond academics, our middle school students are becoming independent, confident, able students and growing socially and emotionally every day.
