Academics and Arts
Each student transitions to the challenges of the middle school years with the support of a highly trained team of teachers who continue the personalized learning experience that is the foundation of the Corbett Prep education. Master teachers support and facilitate the transformations of children into first class young men and women, academically prepared and confident to transition to high school.
Corbett Prep Middle School teachers use the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP) curriculum framework to challenge our students to make real-world connections through an ambitious curriculum designed to broaden their perspectives. Instruction is aligned with National Subject Area Benchmarks, State Standards, and C.C.S.S. standards for each subject. A variety of resources and strategies designed to integrate learning and behavioral styles are used to master these standards and concepts.
"MYP aims to develop active learners and internationally minded young people who can empathize with others and pursue lives of purpose and meaning. The programme empowers students to inquire into a wide range of issues and ideas of significance locally, nationally and globally. The result is young people who are creative, critical and reflective thinkers."
Art, music, drama are part of the core curriculum at Corbett Prep, and these courses are part of a rotation that changes each trimester of the Middle School student's schedule. To further pursue interests and develop their talents in art, music, and drama, students may choose from arts-related Electives and Clubs .
