ABOUT THE Middle SCHOOL PROGRAM
The Chapel Middle School (TCMS) is proud to continue its tradition of excellence for students in grades 6 through 8. As we prepare our students for high school and beyond, our uniquely small class sizes enable us to partner with parents and guardians to meet the increasingly complex social, physical, emotional, spiritual and intellectual needs of today's 'tweens'. Our academic and behavioral expectations are high and clear, and our students learn responsibility and accountability in an environment centered on the Grace of God and forgiveness through Jesus Christ.
The Chapel School's middle grades are departmentalized and use a modified block schedule. Core subjects ... Math, Science, Technology, World History (6), American History (7/8) and English/Language Arts (ELA),... are taught by teachers specializing in each of those academic areas. Students work with separate teachers for Religion, Guidance, Physical Education, Art, Music and Spanish. All Core Subject classrooms are equipped with interactive white boards, and all TCMS students have access to a Technology Lab.
