Open to current GSCM parents and new families seeking the right 7th and 8th grade environment for their children, the Middle School Parent Information night will be held on November 4th at 7:00p.m.
During the evening Sheryl McCarthy, Mary Hamiter, Joan Ratajczak, and Kelly Clune, our middle school teachers, will present an overview of our middle school program. They will address the following topics:
Curriculum and Montessori Principles: What is the curriculum? What are academic expectations? What are the leading values and guiding principles that underlay our practices in Montessori adolescent education? Why do we do what we do? How do we serve Montessori’s vision of the adolescent?
High School Preparation: Several current middle school parents who also have high school children will be on hand to join our staff in answering questions from upper elementary parents. In addition to drawing from their past and current experiences in the middle school, these parents will also be able to reference the high school experience of their older child(ren). How did the GSCM experience prepare their child for high school? How was the transition?
