MS: Program Focus
Besides mastering subject content, Redeemer’s curriculum emphasizes developing critical thinking, research, and problem-solving skills, plus encourages creativity and practical applications. In each class period, instructors use varied teaching methods including direct instruction, classroom discussion, and a variety of learning methods (cooperative, hands-on, inquiry-based, and project-based).
Students have the ability to leave Redeemer with high school credits and are prepared for the rigorous expectations of either public or private high school programs. Want to know where our students attend school next? Click After Redeemer to find out!
Relationships and Emotional Support
Redeemer’s staff models and encourages students to show the fruits of the Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self Control (Galatians 5:22-23). At the same time, we also know that Middle School involves a lot of changes in friendships and learning how to navigate relationships in healthy ways.
Redeemer has a part-time counselor to assist students. In addition, students are encouraged to visit with teachers, Redeemer’s pastors, and youth ministers at any time. Our administrative team (principal and vice-principals) are also available to meet with parents to discuss how to help students with emotional growth and changes.
Growing in Faith and Service to Others
Faith development is a key aspect of Redeemer Middle School’s curriculum. Students are encouraged in all subject areas to grow in their understanding of how God is present in their world and His people. Additionally, students take religion classes 4 days each week and have chapel once a week.
Several times each year, Redeemer students participate in service opportunities that help other schools or organizations in our community. Learning to lead by serving others is regularly demonstrated and encouraged, and students are given opportunities to plan and participate in peer-led service opportunities.
