MS – Projects
Exploring the world via independent projects is a fundamental part of the Middle School. Our goal is for students to discover subjects they feel passionately about. These can be in almost any area — the arts, sports, reading, hobbies, politics, computers, etc. We’ve found that the depth of engagement and understanding in one subject can inspire students to excel similarly in other areas.
On alternate Wednesday mornings when not involved in community service, students work on independent projects of their choice. After having completed a project that demonstrates basic research and paper writing skills, as well as technology elements such as PowerPoint, iMovie, iDVD, etc. students branch out to topics that reflect new interests or skills they may wish to acquire.
We think the ultimate goal of Harmony Middle School is to help students become truly invested in themselves, their classmates, and the wider world around them.
