Middle School

6th-8th Grades

Walker's Middle School prepares students in grades 6-8 to accept increasing responsibility for class preparation, employment of effective study skills, organizational skills, and personal involvement in their own education. We support students in making the transition from childhood to adolescence by helping them recognize the connections between actions and consequences, effort and achievement, and perserverance and accomplishment of goals. 
We seek to promote increasingly sophisticated cognitive and affective development. Students are taught to analyze and solve problems. They learn to use research skills, assess facts, analyze data, formulate conclusions, and summarize findings. Students participate in a series of classroom activities designed to promote maturation of reasoning skills and to encourage them to advance from concrete to abstract thinking.
