For an educator, this time of year is about flexibility, added excitement and treats. At Eaton Middle we are working hard to be as transparent as possible towards the direction our building is heading. Make no mistake about it we are looking to offer the BEST education possible to each and every student that enters our building.
Defining what it means to have a “successful” middle school is quite the challenge, with stakeholders often disagreeing on the approach to take. Some primarily focus on what’s easily quantifiable, such as state tests, attendance data, grade point averages, and discipline data. While these data points are important, they don’t always tell the whole story or clearly define the success of a school.
These seven areas provide a framework for EMS to focus on the development of the whole child, which is a concept we cannot overlook in today’s high stress, high demand cultures.
The Arts- A robust performing and visual arts programs gives students the opportunity to stretch themselves, fulfill a passion, perform in front of authentic audiences, and immerse themselves into creative outlets. The Arts provide a showcase of the talent that exists within a school and brings the community to the school to see students in action. For example, during the the Veteran's Day program our choir and band students performed a number of tunes individually and then collectively.
Focusing on the 7 A’s will lead to an overall successful school by giving every student the opportunity to thrive. Eaton Middle School where YOU matter!
