Firmly rooted in the Montessori philosophy, the Middle School program is built upon a model developed by Dr. Betsy Coe with an integration of the best-practice trends and issues in education. FCMA has strived to develop a curriculum with the needs of the whole child in mind: intellectual, social/emotional and physical. The mission of the Middle School curriculum is to help students develop self-esteem, independence, responsibility, acceptance of others, development of organizational strategies and effective/satisfying social relationships.
Each spring ,the Middle School students complete 35-40 hours of working experience through an internship program. This program provides the students with an opportunity to pursue their own interests while building a professional network, learning to be adaptable, increasing self-confidence, and creating a vision for their personal future.
