Middle School

Program
Introduction

Middle School is a period of discovery and growth and students are encouraged to take risks, try new things, and learn what their passions are in life. 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.

Licensed by the Greenville Area School District, the Middle Curriculum at PennSchool is implemented in integration with MoET program and align with:

These set of challenging standards provide our students with a well-rounded education that balances high academic achievement with social and emotional growth. By embracing cross-curricular projects, collaboration, inquiry and the integration of technology into all areas of the curriculum, students mastery lifelong learning skills, such as research and communication skills, rather than mastery of a pre-ordained body of knowledge, our students are prepared for life beyond Middle School.

The Bilingual – American Program focuses on the American Core Subjects, taught in English, and the combination between the American Specialist Subjects and the MoET Curriculum taught in Vietnamese. After grade 8th, students can choose to continue studying the Vietnamese American Bilingual program and receive the MoET Diploma and participate in English competency tests such as IELTS, SAT, and ACT. Alternatively, students can transfer to the American Diploma Pathway to receive the Greenville High School Diploma (Pennsylvania, USA).
