Seventh grade is an exciting time at SBMS. Rising sixth graders build on experiences from the prior year, and we welcome a number of new seventh graders who have completed their elementary education at other schools. Our seventh grade starts with our passionate teachers who are committed to engaging and supporting the middle school student.
The seventh grade curriculum is grounded in the core disciplines of humanities, math, science, foreign language, life skills and the arts. We provide rigorous classes that are equivalent to what is offered at other junior high schools, but we take learning a step further to engage our students with many special projects, field studies, featured speakers and much more!
Middle School is more than just a school. Our students, whether they begin in sixth or seventh grade, learn to demonstrate in the halls and in our classrooms the knowledge and wisdom gained from our expeditions. Whether it is problem solving with your team to make the sturdiest of catapults in Science class, evaluating a Kiva.org applicant's needs and distributing micro loans across the globe in Human Geography class, or lighting the way for your inner voice to meet the page through creative or expository writing English class, our students are always polishing and faceting all sides of their own "diamond!"
