The pace of our academic program and its conceptual depth is well matched to our able population. Roeper Middle School students read whole novels, not exerpts. Discussions focus more on ideas, symbols, and character development than on facts. Whereas our students acquire necessary factual content, more emphasis is placed on the process of learning -- research skills, thinking skills, abstract reasoning and creative problem solving. In their three years in Middle School, students are gradually prepared for the increased demands of Upper School.
Middle School homeroom is the key to helping the young adolescent stay focused, centered and comfortable. The homeroom is the communication hub for parents, students and teachers, where the advisor keeps everyone in the loop. It is also the center for discussions, traditions and building cohesion for the entire school community. There is a homeroom curriculum that changes yearly to accommodate the changes in 11-14 year olds. Topics covered include communication, goal setting, study strategies, time management, stress awareness and control, relationships, learning styles and other topics designed to empower the student to take control of his/her education.
