Congratulations, Gilman First LEGO League (FLL)! They did an outstanding job representing Gilman’s top-shelf robotics program.
The goal of the middle school years is for students to develop study and learning skills that will prepare them for high school, college, and beyond. The curriculum is robust: In each of his three years in the Middle School, a student takes language arts, math, a social studies/history course, modern foreign language, and a sequential Talk class, and other required classes as determined by his grade level. Latin is added in the eighth grade. Boys will also choose from art, design and woodworking, computer, technology, journalism, communication skills courses, and all participate in physical education/athletics. Varied extra curricular activities provide myriad opportunities for boys to try something new. The Middle School 1:1 iPad of Choice program fosters dynamic, interactive, and personal learning.
Boys begin to spread their wings and and discover their interests in an encouraging, cooperative, and caring environment. During their three years of Gilman Middle School, they learn to take risks; they learn responsibility; they learn to love learning.
