Middle School Curriculum

Mankato Area Public Schools' middle school experience reflects the attributes identified within a middle school model that supports the success of young adolescents.  The middle school model establishes a mentor relationship between teacher and student, creates a small community of learners, and implements a flexible interdisciplinary curriculum that encourages active and personalized learning. Mankato middle school students continue to develop their skills and knowledge in the core areas of English Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, Science, and Health.

In addition to the core classes, students have a wide variety of educational experiences in the exploratory classes of Art; Communications; Family and Consumer Science; Project Lead the Way; Physical Education; and Music. Accelerated offerings and differentiated instruction allow students' needs to be met at individualized levels.  Our staff works to ensure that all students learn at high levels and meet their fullest potential.To accomplish this, they use ongoing formative assessments and work in Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) to analyze student data to address individual needs.
