Guiding Principles of the Middle School Section (Grade 6-8)
Middle School Section students are emerging adolescents who experience profound changes in the intellectual, physical, social and emotional areas of their lives. These changes call for a unique learning environment where happy learners can mature, achieve success and be challenged at their own developmental rate.
The mission of the Middle School Section PPS is to nurture the development of responsible, considerate citizens in an increasingly interdependent global society by creating an environment in which students are challenged to explore, to create, to make decisions and to actively participate in and be accountable for their learning so that they can develop to be capable, contributing and happy adults. It is essential that students learning is embedded in the values of the national community, as well as that students are exposed to international events and issues, and that they develop international mindedness.
