Intermediate School Curriculum
Learn. Dream. Lead
As students enter the intermediate school they are given more responsibilities and freedoms. Students rotate through seven classes each day. These consist of mathematics, science, grammar, literature, social studies, PE, and a rotating elective. Students also have weekly class meeting time and character education.
Students experience the arts through attending The Springer Children's Theater as well as through their electives.
In the fall students take learning outside of the classroom by participating in three field trips. In visiting The Coca Cola Space Science Center children enjoy a fun day exploring science, math, and technology through the Challenger Learning Center, Interactive Simulator Exhibits, and the Omni sphere theater. We also visit Oxbow Meadows where students learn about food webs, reptiles, and vascular/nonvascular plants. Lastly, all students participate in Service Day where we travel to local nonprofit organizations to not only help and serve others but also to learn.
Brookstone Intermediate School students have three planned conferences during the school year. We start the year with Parent Sharing, where parents come in and share information with the intermediate school principal. In the fall, there is a teacher led conference to discuss standardized testing scores as well as other important issues. Lastly, in May, there is a student led conference that involves both teachers and parents. Students summarize the year with their favorite pieces of work, academic history, and expectations for the following year.
All intermediate school students have the opportunity to participate in activities such as Student Council, Gadget Gurus, BNN (Brookstone Network News), Lego Robotics, Math Team, Technology Fair, Geography Bee, Spelling Bee, and Science Fair.
