Students arrive at the middle school at 9:30 and meet in the gym where their teacher will walk them to their class. They will then do their activities until 11:30 where parents will meet them in the cafeteria to pick them up.
The kids are educated in all areas and teachers use fun and entertaining ways to get the students to interact and have fun all while learning.
