At La Conner Middle School we recognize that a great deal of effort over the years has been spent on identifying what our students need to know. This process has resulted in benchmarks, GLEs and the MSP. We also recognize that it is just important to focus efforts on how we teach. The staff at La Conner Middle School is actively involved in the school improvement process and professional development related to“how” we should teach. Our research tells us that students succeed at a much higher rate when we have common strategies for teaching reading and writing. Students are more successful when they have opportunities to collaborate and seek answers to essential questions. We also know that we must understand the traditions and cultures of our students in order to activate prior knowledge and engage students at a deeper level. It is our goal to facilitate students in becoming mathematicians, readers, authors, historians, and scientists. It is our goal to have every student prepared to take the high level high school courses which will allow the to enroll in college.
