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.
8th grade helps prepare students for the demands of high school through challenging, year-long instruction in core courses including Communications, English, Math, Science, English, Social Studies and Physical Education. 8th graders also have enhanced elective course choices in Band, Choir, Spanish, Art, Family and Consumer Science (FACS) and Tech Ed (including Coding).
