Lenexa District and Curriculum
Through the use of critical thinking, problem solving, and technology, a strong foundation is created in reading, language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies at all levels. The districts use a curriculum which details the learning objectives at each grade level in these subjects, helping students develop a deep level of understanding in each content area by the time they graduate. There are also many electives and extracurricular activities for students to participate in.
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lenexa District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum starts with the fundamentals of reading, writing, listening and speaking, and viewing news and other types of media. Students are expected to read different types of literature from fiction to non-fiction so they develop appropriate comprehension and analysis skills for different texts. Writing is taught so that students learn how to tell stories, write creatively, write persuasively, and ultimately produce longer research reports that provide information and analysis.
The Math curriculum starts by introducing students to concepts such as numeric operations, patterning, shape recognition, and probabilities as a way to leave the foundation for algebra, geometry, statistics and other advanced topics at the high school level. By middle school, students are working with geometry proofs and theorems. There is a strong emphasis on tying math learning to real world pursuits, in particular engineering and technology, increasing the learning opportunities in these areas.

Chalk Talk: Guiding Your Middle School Child
Maintaining open communication with your middle school child can be challenging, but your participation in their adolescent years is as important as in early life. Most importantly, take the time to encourage your child to talk by asking specific questions about his day, teachers, friends, and activities. Sometimes it may be difficult to get your middle schooler to participate, but don’t give up! Ensure your child knows that you are an outlet and will listen and work on being open-minded. When your child knows you are supportive and paying attention, she will be more apt to talk and share her life with you. As middle school is a time of great change and exploration, discus emerging interest with your child. Middle schools introduce many electives from music and band to art and drama. Help your child to find his or her niche in sports or extracurricular leadership clubs or service organizations. Middle school is a time to try out many new experiences, so encourage your child to explore far and wide.
