Middle School Instruction

Students in middle school have unique needs and require special attention during their transitional years. These students vary in physical, intellectual, psychological and emotional development.

To meet these needs, middle schools strive to provide high academic expectations for all students, to develop positive attitudes toward learning and future readiness and to transitional successfully between elementary and high school.

TAG Information Night (February 2024)

Attention Parents/Guardians of 5th Grade TAG Students:

The Bend-La Pine School District is committed to helping all students reach their full potential. While every middle school in our district has a plan for working with Talented and Gifted (TAG) students, one opportunity within our range of services is a 6th grade TAG class. Most of our TAG students thrive in their home school programs but this environment may be more suited to the needs of some TAG students. We offer a 6th grade TAG advanced humanities at Cascade Middle School. Students in this TAG group study and learn with other students who are academically and/or intellectually talented. Cascade has opportunities for TAG students to be in advanced humanities classes in 7th and 8th grade as well.
