Our talented Falcon Ridge Middle School teachers work diligently to provide a positive, engaging, collaborative, challenging and welcoming academic environment for every child.
Each grade's course curriculum incrementally builds upon the rigor of the previous year, providing a stimulating, hands-on learning atmosphere. All students also have unique, individual access to the latest technology learning tools through the District 196 1:1 technology initiative. Each student receives an iPad to complete and turn in assignments, collaborate with their peers and their teachers. And each student is assigned to a Homeroom Teacher, which is the first contact for parents with any general questions or concerns.
To make the transition to middle school easier, Falcon Ridge Middle School offers an August orientation event (Fall Rally), a student mentor program led by eighth-graders (WEB Leaders) and sixth-grade classes conveniently located near building amenities. Sixth-grade core classes include English, reading, math, American studies, science and physical education. Electives include art, family and consumer sciences (FACS), technology education, band and choir.
