Gifted Middle School Curriculum
At the Davidson Academy, the middle school curriculum is structured around high school level material. Teachers’ expectations take into account the social, emotional and developmental needs of students at this level. An advanced curriculum based on core courses is taught in a manner that incorporates age-appropriate methods as younger Academy students are typically in these courses. Content in middle school classes is often broken into smaller units for teaching and testing purposes. Since middle school transcripts are impermanent and do not follow students after graduation, middle school is an opportune time for students to acclimate to the demands of a highly rigorous curriculum.
