Junior High

When it comes to educating our students, WDMCS teachers often collaborate in teams to help students learn. At the junior high level, our buildings are structured around the idea of teams.

Each of our two junior high schools is divided into smaller communities for learning, with a group of students assigned to a team of teachers. This allows the teachers to partner to address the unique educational needs of young adolescents during this time of transition between elementary school and high school.

Students are given a choice to pursue one of two pathways for their core classes: 1) a project-based learning model or 2) a traditional delivery model. Students within the Project-Based Learning Network are expected to meet learning outcomes in five areas: written communication, oral communication, collaboration, agency, and content and thinking. These five areas focus on the skills needed to be college and career ready in today’s world beyond high school.
