The Middle School Reform Initiative within MCPS has been working to improve the academic program for middle schools and meet the needs of students from diverse backgrounds. The changes in the Middle School program look to address problems in curriculum, instruction and assessment, leadership, additional opportunities for learning, communication and the need for more community involvement. The curriculum focuses on Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, Science, Physical Education and Health, and the Arts.
