Sixth grade is a great time to join the GLOBE community. With fewer than 300 students in middle school, we can offer a small, nurturing environment and provide challenging academics along with electives and clubs.
Courses and Electives
The middle school day consists of homeroom, seven
50-minute periods, and a 30-minute lunch. Courses include:
Mathematics (Grade-level, High Achievers, or Accelerated)
Health & Physical Education
Foreign Language (French or Spanish)
Arts Elective (Band, Orchestra, Chorus or Art)
The academic year also features lectures from guest speakers, performances from touring artists, field trips to area museums, and an overnight trip to Space Camp. Eighth graders plan a capstone trip, spending 5-14 days in a French- or Spanish-speaking country.
Building a Community of Heroes
At GLOBE we feel that the social and emotional education of our students is crucial during adolescence. Each student at Upper Campus joins a Color Team of Superheroes made up of 4th-8th graders and led by a team of staff members. Color Teams meet weekly to discuss important topics on community building and healthy relationships. It’s also a great way for students to interact with a variety of students and staff across grade levels.
Sports, Clubs, Enrichments, & Afterschool Care
GLOBE offers a variety of clubs including Yearbook, Basketball, Girls on the Run, and more. In 2017-18, GLOBE will field its first school sports team and compete against area schools in soccer and basketball.
Middle schoolers can participate in afterschool enrichments or in our Afterschool Program which provides a fun, structured environment until 6:00 p.m. Check the Student Life
