Kris Bennett, Friends School of Minnesota’s new middle school math teacher, spent substantial time last year reviewing middle school math benchmarks, along with the new Common Core Math Standards. She identified that students would benefit from more in depth study of each concept, along with more practice with computation and algorithms. We have revised our middle school benchmarks and programs to address these and other goals.
Friends School of Minnesota’s summer program is an adventure every day with a total of 184 students, most from the greater community, doing all kinds of interesting things. It’s fun to have such a big and diverse group with us!
