Question: I was wondering how many seventh-grade teams there are, the name of each team and the differences between each team. Are the students grouped together and the teams comprised of students with the same academic ability? Is one team more advanced than another?
Answer: B-P Middle School has four teams of teachers for the core academic subjects, English, math, science and social studies. Teachers on Team Voyager teach sixth-graders; teachers on Team Discovery teach sixth- and seventh-graders; teachers on Team Millennium teach seventh- and eighth-graders; and teachers on Team Enterprise teach eighth-graders.
A student who has specific academic needs, such as enrichment or remediation, will be assigned to teachers who teach classes that can best meet those needs. Whatever team those teachers belong to is the team the student is assigned to. There are not specific “advanced” or “remedial” teams.
If you have any other questions about the team teaching model at the middle school, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 954-2704, or contact my colleague Jennifer Steele at email@example.com or 954-2722.
