Pennsylvania American Middle School (Grades 6th – Grade 8th ) curriculum is designed to address the unique academic, artistic, physical, creative, and emotional development needs of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students with a well-balanced American curriculum and extra-curricular in a dynamic learning environment.
