Knoch Middle School 6-8 Curriculum

Knoch Middle School focuses on assisting students in exploring what their careers may entail.  Students are presented with a variety of opportunities to explore fields like Computer Engineering, Music, Art, and higher level English, Math and Science Courses.  At the middle level our major goals are for students to develop their intellectual ability, increase their self-esteem, and cope with changes they are experiencing. We offer parent and student programs that provide education regarding these changes and support in the areas of academics and technology. In addition, the Middle School tackles topics like bullying head-on through curricular resources, guest speakers, and classroom presentations. Student clubs and activities, many sponsored through the PTSO, offer students the chance to have fun with their peers.
