Mount Vernon Christian Middle School serves as a transition between Elementary and High School. Our distinctively Christian perspective meets the needs of our students as they move toward greater independence and ownership of their actions and education. This perspective is demonstrated in our academics, the arts, sports and service which promotes a journey of faith, excellence and integrity.
Middle School students receive instruction from an overtly Christian worldview. The essential truths of the Bible are incorporated into the daily lessons offered in Literature and Writing; Science; Mathematics, Pre-Algebra and Algebra; Geography, Washington State and United States History and Bible. Additional required courses are offered in Art, Physical Education, Band and Choir. Computer technology is also available for students during their middle school years.
Homeroom classes in the middle school average 22 students, allowing students and teachers to partner in the thinking and learning process. The classroom communities are designed with the idea that students will develop knowledge, wisdom and discernment as they become the young people God intends them to be in Christ.
Beside formative and summative classroom assessments, all middle school students take the ITBS each spring. The 2012 results indicate our students remain consistent in above average academic skill development within their homerooms and 91% of them are within or above grade level on these national assessments.
