IB LEARNER

Delano prepares middle school students that are University bound from the very beginning by arming our learners with experiences, tools and equipment that sets the path for 21st-century learning.

 

Our middle school students are preparing and developing competencies that will challenge them for Upper School.

PYP PRIMARY YEARS PROGRAM

In Middle School, students in Grade 4 & 5 are part of the IB

PYP-Primary Years Program.

Once students reach Grade 5 they complete their PYP journey. All PYP students are part of an important milestone,  the PYP EXHIBITION.

Grade 5 PYP Graduates move to transition to the MYP in Grade 6.

MYP MIDDLE YEARS PROGRAM

GRADE 6 students are in the final stage of Middle School and now enter their first year of the IB MYP- Middle Years Program.

The MYP program continues through Upper School until Grade 10. Learning looks different in grade 6 and a new challenging stage of inquiry unfolds.

Our middle school students are critical learners and they need to be part of their learning experience so that they become engaged and active learners. Engagement drives their attention, motivation and desire for learning. We understand middle school student-learning needs and cater to individualizing our curriculum and experiences for their needs.

Middle school students are active learners embracing academics, athletics and student life. They are finding their voice and courage and learning to position themselves socially.

This period of learning and social networking is critical to their self-esteem and confidence. Their social well being can impact their learning readiness.

 

Our teachers empower students in positive decision-making practices and encourage accountability. We support our learners with experiences they may not typically receive anywhere else.

ACADEMY NAME ORIGIN

The origin of the school name Delano has English, Gaelic, Celtic, Jewish, French and Italian origin. Its' meaning is diverse but has been associated with the Alder Tree Grove. "The Alder Tree Grove reminds us of the need to blend strength and courage with generosity of spirit and compassion. There is a time to challenge things and a time to hold our peace.  The alder teaches us this discrimination and the need to see beneath the surface of things."

-The Wisdom of Trees, Jane Gifford.
