Summary

Middle School at St John’s is more than just a transition from Primary to Secondary school. It represents an important stage in their growth and development of students, facing a range of adolescent challenges that are physical, cognitive, social, emotional and moral.

St John’s Middle School program is specifically designed to meet the development needs of students in early adolescence by way of stability and continuity and diversity of challenge through encompassing all the key learning areas of the Australian Curriculum. Students are also being prepared for 21st Century skills through the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Program (MYP). Through inquiry, action and reflection students are developing critical and creative thinking, social, communication, self-management and research skills.

The Middle School at St John’s continues to develop and review its programs and pedagogical practices in order to maximize the academic, spiritual and social development of its students.

A unique offering at St John’s is the yearlong ‘The Rite Journey’ program designed to support the development of self-aware, vital, responsible and resilient young adults.

Aimed at Year 9 students, The Rite Journey reinvents the traditional process of a Rite of Passage to assist in transforming the adolescent from dependency to responsibility. The program brings positive cultural change for students as they prepare for senior school and their newfound responsibility.
