Middle School Education Program (Grades 6-8)
Our mission is to provide every child with a Strong Academic Curriculum and learning experience that enables Sensory Integration as well as Social Activities. We strive to build on strong Academic Standards (aligned with Common Core Standards) with an understanding of the needs of the developing individual across all ages. Our academic lessons create a unique, individualized education plan for each student, allowing gifted students to progress as quickly as they like while simultaneously ensuring that remedial students get the extra instruction they need.
Academic Learning Needs: Children learn at their own pace, according to their interests and strengths, and in step with their individual style (organically, freely, and joyfully).
Sensory Needs for Learning: It is difficult for children who crave for sensory stimulation to participate in a regular school setting and may be challenging to control and redirect to be able to learn in a certain limited time and pace.
Yoga has a calming effect on the central nervous system and helps develop self-regulation and body awareness. Yoga also fosters coordination and balance and improves motor skills.
Breath Control is helpful for calming the central nervous system. By using correct breathing techniques, a sensory-seeking child can be calmed. Deep breathing also helps with self-regulation and improving self-awareness, both key components to helping sensory avoiders be at peace in their bodies.
SOCIAL & EMOTIONAL LEARNING
SEL takes place within the context of safe, participatory school, family, and community environments that support children’s development and provide opportunities and recognition for successfully applying these competencies.
Social and emotional learning (SEL) involves processes through which children develop fundamental emotional and social competencies to:
Understand and Manage Emotions
Set and achieve Positive Goals
Feel and show Empathy for others
Establish and maintain Positive Relationships
Make Responsible Decisions
Learning environments that successfully integrate technology, offer their students greater opportunities to create and construct knowledge, as well as provide teachers with variety of resources to support all learning styles (Visual-Aural-Write-Kinesthetic).
Utilizing instructional technologies allow students new means of demonstrating their understanding and stretch creativity and self expression through “Cause and Effect”. Technology tools give the advantage of endless teaching methods that engage intelligences and explore ways to implement them in teaching and assessing students differently based on their individual intellectual style of learning.
STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math)
Building on the social-emotional curriculum at the core of KFS SCHOOL, our teachers challenge our students academically to prepare them for the 21st century, and provide them with a framework to become passionate learners.
Music incorporates self-expression, self-regulation, mathematics, motor-planning and executive function. At KFS SCHOOL, music time is a fun, interactive and social time for our students.
Students will learn how to read and write vocal music notation, instrumental music notation, numerical elements, artistic skills, the cultural and historical relevance of different styles of music and how to communicate and independently express emotions and ideas with music.
Students will produce tangible work through musical compositions, in-house made instruments, pictures, lyrics, 3D displays and models, motion pictures, photography, in order to represent and showcase creative expression and interpretations of all skills acquired.
