Middle School Redesign
In an on-going effort to prepare students for the challenges of high school and beyond, the Colonial School District is developing a plan to redesign our three existing middle schools. The redesign will increase student engagement by providing a hands-on, relevant, and inquiry-based approach to learning. Theme schools cultivate student interests and talents while building a sense of community and school spirit. The middle school redesign furthers the district’s mission to prepare every student to be college and career ready.
The middle school redesign plan will:
• Expand upon William Penn’s 19 college and career degree programs.
• Foster unique themes at each middle school.
• Focus on the robust expectations of the Common Core State Standards, 21st-century learning and technology innovation.
• Include educators, students, parents and community stakeholders in the planning process.
