Middle School Curriculum

At Sun Valley Community School, our Middle School curriculum is skills-based, within an interdisciplinary, experiential program where students are taught and assessed on both subject content and on broader student skills.

Our goal is for students to acquire life skills and establish processes that will transfer to other academic arenas, and other areas of their lives.

A Tradition of Public Speaking

Wherever you find yourself on Sun Valley Community School's campus on a given day, chances are good that you will see and hear students developing skills to articulate their thoughts, share their passions, and advocate for their needs.

Opportunities for public speaking come early and often here. Beginning with circle time in the Early Childhood Center classroom and continuing through each division before culminating with the capstone Senior Project presentation in the Upper School, our students earn the confidence to share their story with an audience.

The poise and power of our students' presentations have become a hallmark of a Sun Valley Community School education.
