Nock Middle School Curriculum Top of Page

The Rupert A. Nock Middle School is comprised of three grade levels, 6-8, with approximately 486 students assigned to either the 'Crimson' or 'Gold' teams at each grade. Students enjoy a full menu of academic and exploratory classes throughout the day which is broken into six equal sixty minute periods. A critical characteristic of our middle school is its comprehensive curriculum, that is, the program of planned learning opportunities for our students. It is uniquely and effectively designed to provide for the continuous progress of each child enrolled. We educate the 'whole child' and address the intellectual, physical, social, emotional, and artistic needs of each through a variety of inter-disciplinary learning opportunities that are dynamic and meaningful. Our curriculum, instruction, and assessment relates to the lives of our students, integrates knowledge, focuses on the process of learning, and is delivered in an environment in which exploration is pervasive and students access and process information with real world applications.
