Moving Toward Independence in a Safe Environment
From curriculum assignments to group discussions and from peer evaluations to behavior expectations, the many facets of WWA’s Middle School work together to teach students to be accountable for their actions, advocate on their own behalves, and solve problems creatively and productively. While we strongly promote independence in all students, we also understand that achieving independence is a gradual process that differs from student to student.
In our Middle School, 6th grade serves as an important transitional year as students move from the familiarity of elementary school to the complexities of middle school. As students mature, the expectations we have of them grow, too. By the end of 8th grade, students have learned many important lessons that take them far beyond the classroom to help them achieve well-rounded success in many different aspects of their lives.
Outside of the classroom, each grade level incorporates opportunities for students to learn about themselves and the world around them. These opportunities include:
- Weeklong outdoor education program (6th grade)
- Cultural Night in downtown Denver (7th grade)
- Class trip to Washington D.C. (8th grade)
Independence is a critical component of future success. Please call 303-431-3694 to schedule a tour or learn more about how WWA fosters independence in our Middle School students.
