About Graland’s Middle School

Teaching in the middle school at Graland is a multi-faceted experience. We start with the fundamental belief that teaching middle school students is about building relationships. From here, teachers are responsible for fostering in students a love of learning and the development of skills necessary to be successful. Math, English, science, and history teachers teach one grade level and form that grade's MESH team, whose charge is to create continuity in students' experiences, including developing central themes and interdisciplinary units, common expectations for student work and behavior, to integrate technology, and to manage students' academic and social well being. The MESH team members also serve as advisors within their respective grade levels. World Language and Visual and Performing Arts teachers work with a range of grade levels and serve on departmental teams. They may serve as advisors as well. The middle school experience at Graland calls for teachers to recognize that working with this age group requires a variety of roles, including coaching sports or an innovation team in the Gates lab, and a high level of energy and enthusiasm from its staff.
