Middle School: 5th – 8th Grade


  • Language Arts, math, science, social studies, communications and organizational skills are the focus in Middle School.
  • Teaching is departmentalized, each teacher being a specialist in one or more subjects.
  • In computer lab, students are introduced to modern business methods, which are reinforced through classroom lectures and project assignments.
  • Physical education, art,  music/drama, Spanish and life skills enhance the Middle School curriculum.
  • Field trips are designed to introduce students to cultural events and plays.  Area museums are also visited.  Year end trips are planned and partially funded by student driven fund raisers throughout the year.  Double R Middle School students have traveled to Space Camp, Sea Camp, Williamsburg (Va.), Washington D.C., St. Augustine, and Boston (Ma.).

Bank Day

Students are taught to save money and balance a checkbook by taking regular trips to the bank to deposit their own money which is withdrawn at the end of the school year. The students are excited to see how much they are able to save!
