Rising 6th Grade Explore Team Interest Form

What was once referred to as our STEM Team is now our Explore Team, which better reflects the various project-based learning lessons that will take place on this team.  

What does the Explore Team have to offer?
·         Lower student-teacher ratio

·         Cross-curricular integration to incorporate STEM and Humanities

·         Flexibility in scheduling

·         Project-based learning experiences

Who is best suited for this team?
This team is suited for students who have the drive to be successful, even if they have traditionally struggled academically or socially.  Students who are highly responsible for their academics and behaviors are far more likely to be successful.

How do I express interest?
To express an interest in the Explore Team for next year, simply complete the interest form below by Friday, March 25.   Completing the form does not guarantee placement on the team.  Additionally, placement on the team is not guaranteed for all 3 years of middle school.
