Middle School

At COJOWA Middle School, learning together as reflective citizens and innovative thinkers is the starting point of an exciting journey. Through a focus on social and emotional learning, our students become increasingly comfortable taking chances and take advantage of opportunities to improve oneself, be it in the classroom, on the sports fields, or via other extracurricular pursuits.

Our Middle School builds on our Elementary program’s commitment to student-centered education where values are central and students are encouraged to develop a growth mindset. Students “in the middle” enjoy increased freedom to personalize their educational experience and to explore, be it through STEAM fair investigations, service learning opportunities, or Eagles sports or music activities. These academic and non-academic activities occur in an environment where students support one another’s learning.

In the Middle School, habits of mind take center stage, and students and their teachers together support academic skill development in areas such as critical thinking, close reading, and problem solving to form a solid base for success in high school, in Colombian ICFES tests, and in life. These habits form the basis of core subject classwork in English, Spanish, math, science, social studies (or sociales). There is also a STEM course rotation in grade 6 that offers students enjoyable explorations in the areas of science, engineering, applied mathematics and technology. Physical education, art and music round out our robust curricular offerings for middle grades students. The English team has embraced the Lucy Calkins “writer’s workshop” model, and our 6th graders will earn standards-based grades as already occurs in our Elementary School.

COJOWA’s Middle School features a House system, with students forming bonds across grade levels as they solve problems and engage in creative and fun activities–“learning together” throughout the school year. Students are assigned to a House and remains members of that House throughout their middle years. The Middle School Student Council designed this program and takes ownership of the events where Houses earn points that lead to a House champion crowned at the end of the school year.

In COJOWA’s Middle School, teachers and students work together to forge a dynamic and supportive community of learners. Each student’s individual needs are the focus in classrooms each day (and in some cases are addressed through a robust learning center). Cojowa’s values are embedded in our curricular efforts and help define and drive student success grounded in the whole child.
