Grades 7 & 8 are a great group of students passionate about learning Our7th and 8th-grade academic program is departmentalized, giving students the opportunity to learn from experts in the field. The day is begun with their homeroom teacher, Ms. Autumn Washington, spending time with God through worship and Bible instruction. At F. H. Jenkins we firmly believe that Christ is at the center of all learning and we aim to start every morning learning of Him.
At F. H. Jenkins we use the GO Math! K-8 program. This program provides engaging and interactive lessons that lead students to deeper conceptual understandings of the standards. We also use the By Design science curriculum. This curriculum teaches science from a Christian perspective and encourages inquiry as a primary method for learning. Finally, students in our middle school are engaged in rigorous literacy instruction that pushes them to be critical analysts and evaluators of text. Pathways curriculum is used as a tool to guide students toward literacy success.
