“Teenagers who stay in more nurturing settings where they encounter less departmentalization, fewer teachers, and smaller groups experience higher achievement, attendance, and self-confidence than those who enter large impersonal departmentalized secondary schools.” Linda Darling-Hammond, The Right to Learn: A Blueprint for Creating Schools That Work

“As we learn to live and work in this process world, we are rewarded with other changes in our behavior.  I see that we become gentler people.  We become more curious about differences, more respectful of one another, more open to life’s surprises.  It’s not that we’re either more hopeful or pessimistic, but we are more patient and accepting.  I like to believe we become this way because we’re willing to work with life on its terms.  Although life’s dance looked frantic from the outside, difficult to learn and impossible to master, our newfound gentleness speaks to a different learning.  Life is a good partner.  Its demands are not unreasonable.  A great capacity for change lives in every one of us.” ~ Margaret Wheatley

Middle School Health Forms

Middle School Medication Forms – all three forms are required if a student will be taking prescription medication at school and is responsible enough to carry and administer their own prescription medication.  Middle School Students are allowed to carry only one day’s dose of over-the-counter medication (not a full bottle) in an appropriately labeled container (i.e. Tylenol in a Tylenol bottle) – no paperwork required.
