Our middle school is comprised of grades 5-8, and each grade averages about 70 students. Our school has four "wings" in which each grade occupies one wing, and each student has their own locker.
The middle school currently operates on an 9 period day which includes the classes of ELA and math (extended periods), science, and social studies for every student. Much of our student learning centers around communication and researching skills, technology integration, and productive work in groups.
Student schedules include explore classes which are rotated so students are able to experience topics of Financial Literacy, STEM, Book Club, Writing Workshop, Careers, Art, Family Consumer Science, Ag, Health, and Technology depending on the grade level of student. Our staff continues to move deeper into the Iowa Core Curriculum, Standards-Based Instruction, and assessment practices that align to the Iowa Core. East Sac Middle School prides itself in offering the following initiates and supports to students: excellent athletic programs, outstanding band and vocal music programs, very active student council, reading and math intervention, course recovery, positive behavior supports systems, and other initiatives that support the well being and growth of our students.
