Academic Excellence and Learning
Every aspect of the curriculum and instruction at Giddens School is designed to be excellent – providing students opportunity to gain content and skills of the highest quality. We also feel it is essential to include learning in any discussion of academic knowledge. We provide an academic program that is rigorous, supporting the development of deep understanding through strong instructional practices. At the same time, we recognize that students must also develop skills for learning to prepare them for the content of the future. The world that our students will enter as adults will not be the same one we live in now. We focus on developing learners to assure that our students will be prepared for that world. Giddens graduates enter middle school knowing many things, but they also enter it knowing how to gain and apply new knowledge.
