Middle School

Academic Excellence with a Christian Foundation

Middle school can be quite a rollercoaster ride, filled with all sorts of changes and fresh adventures. It’s a time when kids are navigating through a lot of emotions, growth spurts, and social dynamics. That’s why finding a school that puts Christ at the center and encourages them to build a strong sense of character is crucial. After all, these formative years shape so much of who they become.

At Coulee Christian, you’ll find exactly that. Our experienced teachers and staff are trained to provide a loving and consistent environment for your child to thrive throughout their middle school years. Our aim is to keep our students academically engaged and motivated throughout each year, while simultaneously showing them Christ’s love and how to live out their faith.

What to Expect In Middle School

Lessons in the Christian Faith

From exploring both the Old and New Testaments to discussing biblical values, sexuality, and digital citizenship, our curriculum is designed to instill a strong Christian worldview in our middle schoolers. This approach is integrated into every aspect of the school day, ensuring a comprehensive understanding of the Bible and God’s will for their lives.

In our English Language Arts program, students dive into classic and quality literature, while also honing their grammar and writing skills through systematic lessons and poetry recitations. We provide ample opportunities for reading, with weekly library checkouts and support from our reading interventionist and academic specialist. Our curriculum aligns with Wisconsin’s state ELA standards.

Daily math lessons use Reveal Math as a resource, which prioritizes conceptual understanding and emphasizes sense-making and exploration. Aligned with the Wisconsin state standards, our math curriculum ensures that students not only grasp key mathematical concepts but also develop a deeper understanding of the subject.

Students delve into physical, life, and earth science lessons guided by Next Generation Science Standards. We offer STEAM as an elective for hands-on learning opportunities. For social studies, we focus on analyzing historical events, world cultures, and geography from a biblical perspective. BJU Press and Abeka resources guide students.

A Few of Their Favorite Things

Beyond academics, we offer a variety of extracurricular activities and arts instruction. From all-school spelling bees and speech meets to Battle of the Books and enriching field trips, there’s always something exciting happening. Our students also have the chance to explore Spanish, art, music, band, and physical education with specialized instructors, rounding out their educational experience.
