Endeavor Middle School Program

The mission of the Endeavor middle school program is to empower students to achieve lifelong success while contributing to a diverse global community by fostering positive relationships, providing individualized attention, and cultivating academic excellence in a comprehensive nurturing environment.

The Endeavor Program is an alternative middle school for twenty-two identified, at-risk students. The underlying purpose of the program is to help students academically and emotionally in a supportive and comprehensive environment, so that they can re-renter the mainstream as transformed, more productive students. The backbone of the Endeavor program is P.B.I.S., a behavior system that impacts all school stakeholders. This behavior program tracks student progress throughout the day and provides rewards and incentives for students that succeed, and a means to remedy students who struggle. Students within the Endeavor Program receive daily academic classes on track with their home-school curriculum including Math, Science, English and Social Studies, in addition to daily social skills groups, twice weekly art classes and individual counseling sessions.
