Niu Valley Middle School is a large school, but we create smaller learning groups within each grade level so that you will get to know your team of teachers and vice versa.
Unlike elementary school where you have most of your subjects with a single teacher, middle school requires you to walk to different classrooms according to a bell schedule.
Your teachers collaborate to offer an integrated IB’s Middle Years Programme (MYP) curriculum. Each teacher will give you a course syllabus and clear rubrics so that you will know what to expect and how you will be graded.
You will focus on academics and demonstrate other attributes of the IB learner profile to help you grow as a balanced and well-rounded individual.
Each grade level is divided into two teams. You are assigned to an advisory class, which is a homeroom. Typically, you will start your day in your homeroom.
Elective courses such as music and art are offered to students in all teams. Media and yearbook elective classes are open to 7th and 8th graders only.
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
How can I tell what team I’m in?
What should I do if I don’t understand something or I need extra help/support?
How should I prepare for class?
It's another great day to do something awesome.
