One of the keystones of the SAC Middle School program is the existence of grade teams, and at SAC we are proud to have such a structure as an integral part of our program. The grade teams consist of a group of four faculty members whose common thread is that they teach all the boys in that grade; also, each serves as an advisor for a group of students in that grade. Each day, one of our three grade teams meet, and is given the opportunity to dialogue on a variety of issues that support their professional development, and ultimately their students’ progress in all aspects of school life. Each grade team is led by a team leader who meets regularly with the other team leaders and the Director of the Middle School to ensure that each team benefits from each other's dialogue.
The grade teams use their meeting time to share strategies that support student success and inspire students to reach their potential. Classroom practices and assessment and evaluation techniques are examined in order to help refine their curriculum delivery. These meeting times are also used to contact parents to discuss a student's progress or any concerns. When possible, parents may be asked to attend in person, or are contacted via telephone or email.
