Welcome to Sennett Middle School!
Ray F. Sennett Middle school prides itself on small learning communities and our Dual Language immersion (DLI) and English Language Immersion (ELI) programs. Students are organized by grade level and work with to 2 - 3 core academic teachers. Additionally, one of these teachers serves as your student’s homeroom teacher. The goal of these smaller teacher teams and homerooms is to support relationship building among students and between students and staff. Although core classes are separated based on the DLI and ELI programs due to language needs, students travel to their encore classes as an entire grade. During these classes, at lunch, during recess and in after school activities students have the potential to interact with any of their grade level peers.
Our curriculum is standards-based and common units are taught, while inter-disciplinary skills are emphasized. The integration of technology across the curriculum is a major goal, with emphasis on productivity skills that will empower students. Every student has equitable access to a Chromebook they can use in every class and take home.
Our staff work continuously to develop students’ academic, emotional and social development to enhance school climate and the quality of our overall instructional program while providing a safe and secure environment where students are invited to learn and thrive.
