Preparing your child for a lifetime of learning!
At Atlantic Shores, we understand that Middle School is a very unique time in the life of your student. During this transitional season, we work with your students to teach independence and foster good academic habits that will follow them into their challenging High School courses.
This is an exciting time in the life of your student. New opportunities open to them in the areas of athletics, fine arts and school clubs. They are allowed the flexibility to choose some of their classes. They are trusted to keep track of their assignments and complete them on time. But don’t worry, we have staff standing by for when they can’t remember their locker combinations.
Middle schoolers are often nervous about moving to the "big school", so we offer many opportunities to familiarize them with the Secondary Building. One of those opportunities is a shadowing experience. Towards the end of their 6th grade year, each class is invited to shadow the current 7th grade students for a day. They are assigned a buddy for the day and follow them through their classes and even join them for lunch. We also host a special open house for the parents and students of rising 7th graders. Our Middle School teachers and staff are available to answer any questions and take them on tours of the school.
