Junior High School

 

With our Junior High students, we believe strongly int he effective nature of experimental and interactive learning. If we can teach with a strong emphasis on ‘how’ to learn rather than ‘what’, and equip students with the means and resources to be creative and critical problem solvers, they will be much more suited for successful adaptation to the societal environments they will be entering as they age and mature.

The Junior High curriculum is delivered with a planned structure to the daily lessons, but with room for malleability and flexibility. Student feedback, along with other formative assessment techniques, is used consistently to ensure that information is being received adequately. At Summit Academy, we believe that students can and do respond well to a variety of different instructive styles. Therefore, we strive to intertwine direct and indirect forms of instruction with interactive learning, experimental learning and independent study simultaneously. Our educators aim to promote thoughtful reflection and assessment, with a distinctive effort to help students become more self-aware of their capabilities and strengthen their critical thinking and problem-solving skills, while also nurturing student communication and interpersonal proficiency. Children will often rise to the challenge when one is presented to them, and at Summit Academy we challenge our students to become the best versions of themselves both academically and socially.
