Pilot Butte Middle School
At Pilot Butte Middle School, our mission is to inspire students to become inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people who are engaged citizens of the world. The results are students who are global learners, aware of connections between disciplines and the IB-MYP Global Contexts.
IB learners strive to be inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open minded, caring, risk takers, balanced and reflective. These traits encourage responsible members of our local, national, and global communities.
Integrating disciplinary perspectives, between two or more subject areas, is a means to deepen students' understanding of their world and support them in becoming more competent in it. Pilot Butte teachers collaborate on ways to integrate various subject areas so that students can develop a new, deeper, more compelling or nuanced understanding of the topic under study.
The ATLs are a unifying thread throughout all MYP subject groups. They are the skills that help students manage their own learning. These skills provide the foundation for success in further education and the world beyond the classroom.
An MYP Education embodies the 6 C's: Character Education, Citizenship, Communication, Critical Thinking & Problem-Solving, Collaboration, and Creativity.
The community project focuses on community and service, encouraging 8th grade students to explore their right and responsibility to implement services action in the community. As a consolidation of learning, the community project engages in a sustained, in-depth inquiry leading to service as action in the community. Learn more here.
